I am trying to decide if I need to replace the return line or patch with rubber hose temporarily. THis return line that comes off of #6 injector broke about halfway to the pump when pulling motor. Any thoughts on patch versus replacement? Thanks

It only has to hold the same pressure that the lift pump puts out, less than 40 psi.
I see no problem slipping some tight fitting diesel rated hose over the tubing with a couple of hose clamps.

The best bet is to replace the line.

Stock is always better then a hacked up repair job.

And if your cobbled up repair job fails you will be loosing fuel fast @ 3.50 a gallon!
