With the Kit
You also get the three rollers : Highly recommended you replace them also - Been their and it's gon'a lead to LOT's of fustration.

Believe it's 1/4" thinwall. The fit of those rollers to the tubing is critical. I'd call them direct -

Your best bet is to purchase a rebuild kit. If the rollers get fuel on them they will need to be replaced. That's why they're included in the rebuild kit.

Good point on getting the SL2000 rebuild kit with the longer hose.

I'm have not tired this, but I'm wondering if this might be the correct size fuel tubing.

Dont buy the large Dubro hose, it is too stiff, the rollers wont function.

not sure how stiff the Sullivan hose is though.

i replace it once per flying season, over the winter.

The tubing in my SL2000 has to be 5-7 years old ad I've never replaced yet. Maybe this year....

Thanks didn't that fuel on roller would hurt them. Guess I just order kit direct from them. Guess I got a bad hose from the start as mine is only 4 months old.

The rollers are Delrin and machined. When they get fuel on them they will swell. That's why replacements are included in the rebuild kit.

I have a friend that used dubro oversize hoses and its been working fine for him. He's been using his pump for 10 yrs.. so I think its okay. Personally id buy the kit, but the dubro also works..

i dont know how you guys get yours to last so long.

i pumped about 25 gallons with it before the line burst.

the following year after the same amount of fuel, i checked the line, and i could see fractures forming. it would just be a matter of time.

so i change it once per year as a precaution.

The delrin rollers will NOT swell in fuel.
This is incorrect. The rollers are machined to a very tight tolerance. If the tubing breaks and they get wet they will swell enough to be out of tolerance. Again, they are included in the rebuild kit specifically for this reason.

Its fixed but you think for 13 bucks you could get more than 8" of hose atleast enough for a second time. Hope it last long than 4 months this time.
