    Default Suggestions re sourcing a D "feed tube union"

    I need to get a new "feed tube union" part number DS 174-82 for a 1971 D special. It's the bit that connects a nylon pipe to the metal piece in the fuel tank.
    Does anyone agree that the De Franzose part 32239 is the very same ? ( despite their off putting parts description )

    I think the Der Franz part is for an injection car and by description is fitted somewhere under the bonnet?

    The part you require is listed here, but that is an off the planet price for a piece of fuel hose. . . part #9 used in two places in the diagram linked.

    I'd be measuring the OD of the Rislan and steel tube and checking what can be had at your local automotive store.

    Agree with Chris. It’s just a rubber pipe. Find a close fit locally.

    Hello, is this it? As Chris and Co suggest, just a piece of fuel resistant pipe.

    I think you're right. Part DS 174-82 is 280mm long. So is the part from Citroen Classics. I think Franzose sell a kit with this part in it too. Part 32346: https://www.franzose.de/en/Citroen-D...hoer/ANR32346/

    Just a gotcha here.
    The factory part has two diameters - the replacement only one.
    There is only one clamp on the factory rubber IIRC which is the metal side.
    Because the replacement is one diameter it is vital that the replacement is clamped both ends (preferably ligarex).
    If you don't fuel will work it's way up the gap between the nylon tube and the tank metal guide tube and spill everywhere.
    Don't ask me how I know....
    Cheers,

    Regular old fuel hose does the job nicely. Can't remember the exact size I used but pretty sure it was 5/16", easily obtained at repco, supercheap etc. The rilsan tubing has an 8mm outer diameter.
