Fuel pipe question

Hi Guys
I`m just finalising my mpi conversion and have come across a little snag,
The punto 75 fuel rail has a thread to which the inlet fuel pipe threads onto(the fitting is crimped on by the factory),On the cinq its just a push on pipe with a jubilee clip,Could i replace the whole rubber pipe on the cinq and fit the pipe from the 75
Cheers
Adrian

Re: Fuel pipe question

Not exactly sure what you mean, but as long as it fits, doesn't leak and you keep the ID (Internal Diameter) of the hose the same size or greater, so as not to restrict fueal flow all will be good

Re: Fuel pipe question

Check out the Rally Design website for fuel hose and ends. Its the safest way.

Re: Fuel pipe question

Hi Guys
It`s a specific connector,I cant seem to find one anywhere.
This is a piccie of a punto 75 powered cinque that belons to chevaler from france.
It`s the factory fitting from a punto 75 but must connect to the cinque fuel system some how

Couldn't get a smaller picture could you?

All these years of abuse, I can't see the connector clearly enough, sorry.

Cheers

Re: Fuel pipe question

Hi
Just a quick reply to my own question,
Might be of use to the guys doing mpi conversions,
I had another look at the fitting today and realised i could probably cut off the crimped section,
I clamped the nut part in a vice and very carefully (using a junior hacksaw) cut down the crimp in a couple of places until i could peel the crimp off the fitting,You have to be very careful when cutting as you don`t want to damage the tube in the centre of the crimped section,
I now have a fuel fitting that will be easy to push into the cinque fuel pipe,

I`ve spoken to a friend of mine that rallies a 180bhp 1.8 16v k series mini,and all he uses to attach his fuel pipes is 2 jubilee clips per connector and says this has never given him any problems in 2 seasons of rallying so i`m going to try that method before splashing out on aeroquip fittings
Cheers
Adrian
