Hello all! I am looking for some help.
Quick back story . . . spun main brgs in Apr 2020, full rebuild on my ej255, my first Subaru engine rebuild started Jan 2021.

Issue:
I am reassembling my intake manifold and the attached picture shows where I am fairly certain my return line is supposed to connect, but, I cannot understand how. I am pretty sure a regular fuel line was on there before but it was cracked when removed and now I don't remember. Its a REALLY tight corner. Should I have a formed line?

Cheers!

@2.5x_sleeper Thanks Sleeper, I appreciate the link. I attempted to search figured my terms were too vague. Thanks again!

Based on these two diagrams:


I believe the hose you are looking for is part number 807707111, which does appear to be a formed hose.

you should replace all those little hoses and tighten all the hose clamps. they are notorious to come loose and start leaking fuel. i just did mine with new clamps that i can get a slotted screwdriver into and i used just high pressure fuel line from any autopart store. the formed lines are nice, but expensive compared to what i got at the auto store.

Thanks for the tip! I did get some new line and was changing them out when I ran into this problem. Hence the question about a formed hose. Ill swap the straight shot pieces as I can but this piece will be picked up today. Thanks again!
