Default Braided fuel injector pipes for Cq KV '87

Anyone have a set of 5 of the braided fuel injector pipes for a Cq? Two of mine have corroded right through and are seeping fuel. Only a matter of time before it turns into a drip and then I'll be driving around in a fire hazard

There is difference in thread pitch on the injector end of the braided fuel lines. I have had injectors/lines with fine pitch and 'normal' pitch. Be sure you get the correct ones.

Had mine made to match by Earls of Silverstone cost me 100. New ends and braided.

They are pretty close to you and if I remember correctly took 24 hours. They did need the old ones to match up.

Thanks.Are they the same type as in the above picture? ie. Braid changing to solid metal pipe? Some have braid all the way through and I'm not sure if they will fit or not.

Thanks. I will bear them in mind if my search for a second hand set fails.

Found the link plus a piccie.

Parts wanted:- audi 90, 2-1-15. there is a picture on there. As I said they need the old ones to make new copies of the ends and length.

They make the lines for the formula 1 cars on the track, so excellent service.
