Default cracked high pressure fuel line 1990 honda accord?

while replacing the fuel tank ( car was stolen and they poked holes in the old one to drain the gas ) i cracked/ broke the fuel main supply hard line at the bulk head fitting near the frame. can i flare the ends and clamp in a section of rubber fuel line or will the pressure from the pump be to high and just blow them off ?

If the car has a carburetor you can get away with splicing in a piece of rubber hose. The fuel pump for a carburetor has an output of 10 PSI or less. Just make sure the rubber fuel line is rated for fuel.

However, if the car has electronic fuel injection this fix would not work. Fuel injection has way too much pressure, 50+ PSI. A rubber hose and your repair would fail. If you have fuel injection you would need to use the correct fittings and flair the line then splice in a metal line.

I think you'd go for the genuine Honda Accord parts as 1990 Accord had much different original parts as compared to new Accord and you may get into problem.

its worth a try just make sure you double flare and do it carefully. i have spent hours trying to get a proper double on a brake line so it would seal on a master cylinder. also keep an eye on it for a few days after you're done.
