Fuel dripping at back of motor where the hard plastic 90 degree elbow connects to the metal fuel rail. I replaced the plastic connector on the metal line coming from the engine and now it leaks worse. When I took it apart the 2nd time, there were 2 o rings on the metal line from the engine above the plastic connector that I had just replaced. They both appear to be slightly damaged. Cuts indentations. One is soft and pliable, the other seems to be made of hard plastic. I do not know where they go. I would like to fix it right, however I am travelling and need a fix. To get me another 2,000 miles. If I simply cut out the 90 degree plastic elbow and splice the hard plastic line coming from the fuel tank to the metal line coming from the fuel rail with a piece of fuel line and 2 metal hose clamps. Will this work? A "mechanic" friend says it will as long as there is no type of control valve involved. I'm worried about the pressure. Please help and be willing to respond or possible take a phone call from me. Thank you. Mike Ellis
