Fuel line leak!!! HELP!!!

I have a 01 7.3, the leak is on the fuel delivery line to te passenger side cylinder head where the bracket holds down the line. I was wondering if I could cut out the bad section of line and put in a piece of rubber hose for a temporary fix, till tomorrow or is the pressure to high for that kinda temporary fix????:dunnoo

i just posted on this yesterday lol
its too high pressure to cut it up and try and and rig it together.
i guess it takes a long time to change the passenger side fuel line.
dieselorings sells the hard line for like 40 bucks.
the bracket wears a hole in the line, so when you replace it put something in between the line and the bracket.
go to 99-03 general discussion and youll find my post titled
hard fuel line replacement.

no i made the post. cause i have the same problem lol.
you can buy it at dieselorings.com for only 45 bucks. im sure the stealership is gonna be more and you have to use compression fittings but i know the line from dieselorings comes with them.

that is not a high pressure fuel line 50-60 psi tops.i guess you have to decide
if it's worth spending the money if you have it or making it work if you don't.but if it was a 911 situation then do what has to be done at that time.
