    Well it was supposed to be an easy Plenum refurb, removing has revealed rotten fuel lines and the rest!
    Anyone know of a company who remakes these in the Uk?
    Ferrari don’t have all available and the cost is a bit excessive!
    Any info much appreciated!

    I think the compression fittings are an Emerto fitting which are readily available. You can get seamless hydraulic pipe from RS Componients which is easy to bend using a mini pipe bender. Once u get the idea it is not too bad. The full circles might take a few goes but not going to cost much to give it a go as you have the patterns. Send me e mail address and will send u link to the bits

    While not in the UK, Dave Helms (SRI) may have advice, and perhaps product, for you. He is on top of ethanol issues and effects in our fuel systems, for example. SG

    Looking at what makes up the pipe i could make one for £20 . Like u say ferrari prices. Its a length of hydraulic pipe, a weld banjo fitting fixed with AG60 silver solder and an Emerto male stud coupling.

    It just gets me how much they charge for something i can make in my garden shed and for next to nothing.

    So we could say this type of fitting is ermetically sealed?

    Its seals on the olive like others, the thread on the compression part is a bit of an odd one through.

    I expect Ferrari prices but I can’t even buy the set if I wanted as 1 out the 4 I need is unavailable, so unfortunately no choice but to find another option

    Quick update,
    In the end I went for replacement braided lines from HEL Performance,
    £30 per line all fitted running perfect, not original but will keep original lines if I want to have some made exact in the future.
    HEL were really helpful and very quick turn around, send old lines on the Monday, done and back for Friday

    Looking good ! Did'nt they have an angle of 90 degrees to put above the injectors ?

    You can buy a right angle adaptor to add to what you have.
