I'm not super proud of it, but I ended up running the new fuel line on the outside of the frame between the K member and the frame. I drilled a hole through the seam at the back of the wheel arch and plumbed it directly into the remainder of the factory line. It works and nobody will really see it. Maybe I'll figure out a better solution when I get around to doing the engine work. Thanks for the help!

I haven't read this entire thread and I know it has been a while since anyone has posted here, however, I thought might add that Mopar sells an emissions-control or "EC" kit for vehicles 1976-1995. From what I read at the beginning of the thread, this sounds like it would meet all of the requirements that you would need for CA emissions inspections.

I'll have to take an even closer look. It didn't look like it was open enough to put another line in, just a hole big enough for the original. I'll clean out all the road debris and see what my options are.

I didn't take the upper control arm off when I did mine, maybe I disconnected the upper ball joint to lift the upper control arm out of the way some more.  I think I just fed the new line through right where the old on ran, it's been a while so I'm a little fuzzy on details unfortunately.

A while back I swapped out the steering gear. However, You must remove the drive side catalytic converter. However i could not get the bolts lose so i ended up removing the left exhaust manifold and using a sawzall to cut the exhaust pipe below the oil pan. At the time not realizing that the top of the pipe is flat.

So I have been driving for years now with an exhaust leak where the pipe was cut.

I want a clamp so that it can be removed. Since i need to replace the steering gear again since the one i got was faulty.

Anyone have any ideas on a clamp for the pipe with a flat side?

I have determined that is indeed the fuel supply line that is leaking and it is leaking somewhere in the frame rail. What I am noticing, is that it is secured to the frame rail somwhere inside maybe. Some of you said that you have replaced this line before. Does the upper control arm have to be removed and/or is the top of the frame rail removeable?

Depending on the answers to those questions, where have others run a new fuel line. I'm considering just running the new line right above the frame but a little concerned about control arm clearance.

You are correct Mark - mine is a 46RE -  I just mis-typed this morning!  Thanks!

I believe MarkM did this on his Fifth Avenue.
He first installed an A500 then upgraded to an A518 (A518 roughly equates to a 46RH, though I think yours is a 46RE given the year).

Hi Everyone -
I have been planing to swap the drive-train in Gertrude's Fifth.  I have a low mileage 2002 318 MPFI and matching 46RH (correction: 46RE) from a Ram van that we parted last winter.  I also have nice 8 1/4 rear with 3.73 gears.  The engine/trans wiring and computer are all sorted out and run on the stand.  The install for the most part should be pretty straight forward.
Before I dive in and remove the old drive-line, I want to figure out the modifications that will need to be made to the trans tunnel and rear trans mount.  I was able to find a few documented attempts at this while searching, but I am still unsure of how much the cross member has to be removed/modified and also how to reinforce the area after trimming.

Has anyone in Dippy world done this? Any BTDT's?
