Replacing the small gray water lines in a 01 Virage TXi?
Any idea on options to replacement of the small gray water lines in a 01 Virage TXi? I just took the old ones off..... they didn't want to come off with out a fight!

those lines get old and inflexible..a pair of long nose pliers( 90 degree bend works good) and get them in a position where you can get some leverage and the lines will slide off. Had to use a heatgun on the emm water line that exited at the back of the hull..that sucker was just not coming off.
I used reinforced clear nylon line ( beverage type) so water flow can be confirmed..besides that they hold up better. Of course you can use a-1 rated fuel line if you're inclined. Water coming out of the emm can get pretty warm.so use good stuff.
oh yea..gloves and bandaids are required equipment doing any line work in a Polaris.

Thanks for the tips. I had a Fiat X 1/9 and after working under the hood I would need to go to the ER.
The hose is the same they have at Lows or Home Depot?
Any ideas on this link I posted? I did blow on all lines and they seem clear. I also hooked a short hose up to the EMM and it seems clear too. Can a fuel pump run then just start cutting off then hours later work again....or better yet have you seen it happen?

Could the fuse be working then not to make the fuel pump come on and off?

Unplug the connector at the fuel pump or leave it connected and tap into the brown wire (engine off). Either way, if the voltage stays stable at 12 volts (battery voltage) while you wiggle and tap the circuit breaker and related wiring, then it is probably OK.
Both circuit breakers and fuel pumps can become intermittent. You check this by ensuring the voltage supply is stable and solid. If the power and ground (Brown wire) are well connected yet the fuel pump does not run consistently then the electric fuel pump itself may be failing. It can happen.
