rusted fuel lines, anyone replaced with rubber?

hey guys have a 94 turbo idi and the rear fuel lines are rusted and starting to leak. Was wondering if anyone has ever replaced them with anything other than the $172 dollar dealer lines. Checked all the auto parts stores and no one has em. I was wondering if i could just run new ones with hose clamps and the right kinda of lines, or if there was too much pressure in the system. Have to do some work on both tanks and lines, and not trying to invest 800 dollars in parts.

thanks for you help

Which lines are you talking about? The hard metal lines going to the injectors? If so, you have to have metal lines, pressures are too high, and they have to be the same length of injection timing for each cylinder would be messed up. I've seen the hard lines for sale on the internet but forgot the site. They seemed to be $25 a line.

Talking about lines from fuel tank switch to gas tank. Has rubber ends with metal line about 5 feet long between.

I had the same problem on mine. The metal line has a hose on the end of it already, the real problem is those damn special Ford fittings. If anyone knows how to get rid of those, I am all ears. I just used generic metal line of the appropriate size, cut the ends off and attached the hose with a hose clamp. It has been awhile, but I believe I put a bit if a flair on the end of the line just so the hose had something to grab on to.
