    You can boil some water, stick one end in the water for a while, lube up the 5/16" barb on the pump with some spit, or dishwashing soap or something...then slide the hose over it with some force.....It will go on without splitting.....

    I'd be inclined to buy some of the 5/16 and experiment by heating the stuff up over a 1/4 inch dowel and see what happens. It makes more sense to me that it would be 5/16 and shrunk to 1/4 rather than risk splitting the PTFE by trying to get 1/4 inch hose over a 5/16 inch barb. Heat-shrink PTFE tubing is pretty common in the electrical cabling biz.

    How long is the tubing in the OEM module? I'm guessing we'd need the 14 inch long stuff?

    Based on the hoses that I have gathered up from used fuel pump units, I have a tendency to think they "enlarged" one end to fit over the 5/16" fuel pump fitting....

Took it to the lake for a test, it started but was running very rough so I gave it a little gas. It died and wouldn't start again. Took it back to the shop and had him go at it again. He said that the pump runs but it's not taking. bottom line, he say's it won't work??? I picked it up and am going to try and fix it myself. Has anyone experienced this? Any tips or suggestions?

    Thanks a lot,

    I installed the AC Delco EP356 as a replacment on mine I re-used the hose that came with the fuel pump unit. I have not had any problems at all, boat runs fine. I would check to make sure there is not a kink in the hose, fitting loose, or wrong hose installed.

    Nice find Boofer. Did anyone check to see if an autoparts place has them or can get them?
    I will check a few around here.

    Bigmac, how do you know that Delphi does not make a 1/4" hose? I am just curious. If this is true, then I might gander that it is a 5/16" hose used in our modules and shrunk (assume with heat) to fit the 1/4" barb.

    I spoke with someone at Midwest Manufacturing, a fuel pump module re-builder. They tell me their distributor for convoluted in-tank fuel line is Power Signal Group. Tele. 800-722-5273. From looking at PSG website, my guess is that they get the fuel line from Delphi.

    I'd start by seeing what kind of hose the guy used to connect the new pump to the regulator, and how he secured the hose ends to those barbs.

    I think you guys have it right that they are the same size hose flared to different sizes at each end.
    I can't believe that between all of us we can't find a source for that plastic hose.....
    It's on my list for next week, i will keep you posted.
    Nice work Stu thanks for the update. Lets get this hose issue sorted out and then we have it beaten!!!

    Speaking of fuel pumps I have a 1991 Prostar 190 with the 351. What model number fuel pump is this and where can I order one?
    Thanks for the fuel pump help.

    You're exactly right, factory flared to different sizes. Heat would probably help.

    I'll send you an email, but maybe we can both get one and combine shipping.
    Sounds good to me.
