Default D8 Clunk fell of fuel line

My clunk fell off of my fuel tubing inside of my tank. I dont have time to order a new tank so I took the tubing out of the tank and replaced it with new tubing along with the clunk filter cone thing. I had a hard time getting the fuel line back on to the plastic nipple with in the tank, i got in on there pretty good i think. now for the question, will the pressure in the tank when the car is running pull the fuel line on more if its not already on there all the way? thank you for your time.

No. There's pressure, but not enough to put lines together.

Run losi line through the tank and eliminate the nipple all together.

Yeah. The nipple comes apart.

Pinch the nipple from inside the tank with your finger and loosen the nut on the outside of the tank. It's made out of plastic so be gentle. I've found that once you take it apart it leaks, so every time I get a new tank I jut eliminate the nipple completely.

You can unscrew the black nipple and nut on the fuel line pick-up, it's plastic so don't grab it too hard. The internal fuel line can cut/tear from the klunk bouncing around and is usualy the cause of the klunk seperating from the internal fuel line. It wouldn't hurt to use a thicker fuel tubing for the internal line and possibly put an additional fuel tubing ring on it's end to pinch it onto the nipples better.
