Default fuel supply line leak, how to fix

Greetings,
My 90 supercab has sprung a leak. The fuel supply line right about in the middle of the tank and the fuel filter has developed a hole and sprays gas when its running.

This is purely a weekend random use truck for odd jobs around the house, so I would like to keep the fix cheap and fast if at all possible.

Would something like this work, maybe not this exact part but something like this

advice welcomed!
Thanks

Default also have leak

I have a leak also, and i am under the suspicion that it may be the source of my problem. where the line comes out of the filter there is a plastic tab? thats where my leak is, when it is running. Can this also cause fuel pressure problems and make it seem like you have a pressure regulator problem.... thoughts.

Nope leak is just where it looks like the nylon / rubber fuel line has rotted away, its on a straight piece of line not near the filter or gas tank.

As a temporary fix I've used airline brass barbed fittings. I've also silver soldered miscellaneous brass fittings together to make a fix.
Good luck,

Richard

Your description is a little confusing.. How about a picture?

A leaking rubber hose will just need to be entirely replaced. Easy to do
