Jx Syncro fuel lines

Post by jes*b »

I have air in fuel lines so going to start but changing filter ( been on a long while by looks ) and the thermo valve. Fuel lines look original so may have to move on to those in turn. It's a late van ('92) . Can anyone give me the sizes of line in need ( will be from from brickwerks) . I believe the tank outlet is14mm and it steps down . It's a panel van within ebbe etc tee'd in so where would the step down from the 14mm be found as it's not anywhere immediately near the outlet like it is on the Westy. Cheers

Sounds a bit weird.... my step down was about 6 inches from the fuel tank... Originally a JX, panel van converted by Holdsworth.
Any one for cricket? what what?

You might just have to release the tank straps and have a peer in the gaps around the tank with a torch.

the big stuff is 11mm weird VW only pipe going onto a 12mm spigot on the tank Brickie sells a 6" length for the petrol set up standard diesel is 120mm, T wise I don't know they don't show it on the parts diagram so you'll have to copy yours and do the measurements yourself; then pop a picture up with the measurements for the next person with a Finnish 16" Panel Van in the UK who asks a random q : )
small stuff is 7mm standard length is 1710mm to filter and 1100mm return

Thanks Aidan. I must have typed the question without me specs on - to clarify the Westy has the tee piece and there is no need for one on the panel but also there is no step down in sight ie. there is no short length off the tank spigot so I'm thinking someone's been here before and the step down is somewhere along the pipe run behind tank. Not visable .
Also at the filter should all the connections be oetiker clips or similar as I have some rubber fittings?
How do we post photos now days with the death of photo bucket ??

Also brickyard has so many fuel pipes . And they don't seem to marry up with the step down that they sell in terms of exact measuremts. I have a good amount of the tank spigot size left over from changing the pipes on the westy so that's a good start but not sure which one is the correct pipe to step down to for the jx fuel filter Can someone post a link ? Cheers

Cheers Simon . I actually sorted the order with Michael just before you closed . I found the left over length of tank outlet pipe from doing the Westy so ordered up some 7.3mm and the step down . Not got round to doing the job yet as want the tall man to follow me on any test drive to recover me home if needed as only seems to run rough under load . Am hoping a fresh filter and thermo valve will sort before tackling the pipes

Would this not do it?
With Eberspaecher?

Want a normal one without Eberspaceher? Ones on the shop are what's been asked for, we can make one up without the T-piece if req'd.

Ah. Would have done nicely. Next time. I did boob however as I forgot to order enough 7.3 to make up the run from filter back to tank .
Anyway , new filter and thermo valve fitted. No test drive as yet but under heavier revs there are still bubbles . Especially when you rev hard then drop the revs sharply. Doesn't seem to have any effect on the running of the engine but then again we are parked up and peering in the back.....

You need 5.5mm for connections to the thermo valve not 7.3mm
Currently meant to be having some rubber 8 to 6mm straight reducers made in FPM, they have been months. I'll chase those in the new year.
