[CAGE]Hole in metal fuel line, is this temp fix a bad idea?
A buddy of mine has a 91 Honda Accord and we discovered a hole in the metal fuel line that runs from the rear of the car all the way up to the fuel pump at the front of the car. The pre-bent Honda part is only $61, but won't be available for a few days. Would it be a bad idea to cut out the bad section of metal fuel line and replace it with rubber fuel line temporarily until the stock part comes in and I actually have time to replace it properly? We're talking maybe a week or two, tops, before I could properly replace it, based on when he would be able to be without the car for any amount of time.
I considered the alternative of buying fuel line from autozone, but I would have to bend it. Plus, they don't have a piece long enough to go from one connection to another so I'd have to get two pieces and join them to make one long piece. I've bent fuel line before, and with the number of bends I'd have to make, I just don't have the time to get it done before he needs the car. So is the temp fix a bad idea? And how bad of an idea is it, on a scale of 1 to 10 (10 being "don't even think about it")?
