Hello all,
I have a crack in my brass fuel line. Is this repairable, or do I need to replace it?
If I need to replace it, where would I find one? I would love to replace with original parts. Does anyone have a spare they can sell me?

I have tried to find compression fittings to fit the thread (I believe 1/8 IPS, or 5/16-27 IPS), but I am not able to find the size for the thread to make a replacement.

Thank you for any assistance with this.

Should be able to solder it, after all, water line for swamp coolers can be soldered which work under more pressure than a stove.

I would silver solder it, the generator gets plenty hot. But yes, just solder it.

Thank you Keith and Duane. I will try that. Would you cut in a groove to widen the crack or solder over the top of the crack?

I am no expert on these things, but I would just solder over it. Clean, really clean. flux.

Silver hi-temp solder is the way to go.

I'll give that a shot with the hi-temp silver solder and let everyone know the outcome. Thanks.

Nice fix. And very good you went the silver solder extra. As the fuel line is before the shutoff valve and would not be able to turn it off if it were to leak since the tank is pressurized and no shut off
