Hard Start...Still

What's your point in showing the blow up pictures of the nonfunctional hose
ends?  The hose clamps were a 1/2 inch inboard, and the critical area is at
the steel tube interface with the hose.  Pictures of a sectioned hose
showing this interface might be more meaningful.  Only one of these hoses is
under pump output pressure, and if it were leaking, fuel residuals would be
evident on the hose exterior.  The other hoses are just tank vents and fuel
return hoses, seeing only tank pressure.  DFI if IAB!
