Well the line he was talking about was just a fabric line, not braided or anything, so he used a fuel injection line from one of the engines on the trailer to fab it up

if it really was a HP oil line, tell him to get that thing to a hotel in a town with a parts store, take it easy the whole way there, and park it. That line may not hold under the full 3000 psi possible if in fact it was a HPOP line that blew.....

he said it was a line running from the HPOP to the front of the head. From what i understand it was just a soft fabric line, he said it was so brittle it would crumble in his hand so i would assume that if it was a high pressure line it would have went along time ago, and he said it didn't really "spray" fuel out just kinda "run" out so I'm not real sure exactly what line he broke.

if it was fuel, it wasnt a HPOP line, that would spray oil....his fix probably will be just fine for the 30-40 pounts of what sounds like fuel pressure that line will see...
