Do everything in your power to not disconnect the hose from the top of the fuel pump module, and do not ruin the hose. The hose is a bizarre hose because one end is 1/4 and the other end is 3/8. The top end is the 1/4 inch end.
There is not another hose in the universe that is that size and is meant for in the tank use. In a pinch on the 4th of july, I used regular 1/4 inch fuel line and was able to stretch it out over the fuel pump fitting. But as is mentioned in one of those threads, that hose will degrade over time unless it is meant for in the tank use. Mine was starting to split and had a sticky feel to it when I removed it, indicating it was breaking down. I did leave it in there for over a month before I replaced it. I guess I like to live on the edge.
The problem I found was that I could not find a 1/4 inch hose clamp in my entire city despite 2 hours of shopping every place I can imagine. I finally ended up putting a brass fitting around it and then clamping that down.
