Hello,
I've a V8 Volvo penta in my boat and when changing the fuel pump, the pipe to the carburettor snapped. I'm wondering if anyone could point me in the right direction to buy something similar. The closest I could find is this

GM FUEL PUMP LINE TO CARBURETOR HOSE KIT 3/8" X 5/8-18 2' LONG | eBay
but no idea if it would fit, plus it's from America (I'm in UK)

I have some old fuel pipe and was thinking if I could find the right connections I could make something myself but unsure what I'm looking for

thank you

Yes
Taking the old pipe to reputable hose suppliers and getting one made to sample is normally the simplest
i sent the hose back to the guy I bought the engine off as he said he would sort it. 4 weeks later he continues to fob me off and has now stopped replying to my messages or taking my calls

If you buy some copper fuel line and a flaring tool you can make your own, re-use the threaded connectors.
