I have this fuel line that has a clamp broken. As in the photo I was able to ram a hotel key card in and get moving after some time cranking to get fuel pressure back.

Iím currently in Dallas, any leads on who can fix this on the weekend? Any other ideas how I can repair other than the key card?

Can you tie/wrap a couple loops of steel wire through the retainer, and engage the edge of the pump?

Yea I think I can pop some zip ties on it tomorrow and get home. The key card trick at least got me out of blocking traffic trying to get into DFW remote parking.

What part needs to be replaced?

If that’s the 2004-2006 High Pressure fuel line between HP pump and fuel rail:

Mopar 05117421AA
MB A 611 070 10 33

Added: Looks more like the 2003 LP fuel pump outlet line?
Give me a couple of minutes...

Found it:
Mopar p/n 05135866AA "LINE, FEED PUMP FUEL PRESSURE SENSOR"
MB p/n "A 612 070 26 32"

Itís the connector of the line that goes into the top of the pump on the engine block. Pops right off and then bubbles appear in the fuel line. The card in the picture prevents it from coming loose / holds it in. I am going to try some wire ties tomorrow

It is a 2003

Yeah... pump looked wrong for an '04.

Found it:

Mopar p/n 05135866AA "LINE, FEED PUMP FUEL PRESSURE SENSOR"
MB p/n "A 612 070 26 32"

See: http://diysprinter.co.uk/reference/03va-parts%20manual.pdf

The feed pump fuel pressure sensor is located on the inlet fitting on the lower left corner of the hp injection pump.
That line runs between 25 and 55 psi, which is how it has held with just a credit card, as opposed to the 20,000 psi produced by the hp injection pump. The fittings are bonded to the fuel lines, so you'll need to replace the whole line.

Keep the old fuel line - I've read that they're great to use with a vacuum pump to prime the system after fuel filter changes. Connect it to the LP pump outlet port (where you're currently leaking) and draw fuel up to the pump with a vacuum pump or syringe, then quickly reconnect the fuel line.

I recently had good T1N-related service from Freightliner of Austin. There are three Freightliner-affiliated businesses in the DFW area - one Freightliner proper, and two Premier Truck Group. All three are listed as opening at 7 a.m. on Saturdays.

Great job with the hotel key card. :thumbup:

Not that anyone asked...

If the seal is good a suitable DIY retainer can be a permanent repair. The retaining method just needs to keep the seal in proper position. Clips are for factory assembly convenience. I've used cable ties or wire with good success. If the fuel system is otherwise intact you may go down a rabbit hole during replacement of parts.

Purchase the part(s) to have on hand if you're not a true believer that the seal just needs to be held properly in place and doesn't need the OEM clip.
