That's what bugs me...why on earth would somebody use something like that that wasn't completely hollow to attemp to make a splice?

S10 Racer Maybe an inline fuel filter gone wrong.

FmrStrtracer Agree that it looks like someones attempt at splicing a broken fuel line. Never saw anything like that on any factory GMC that I worked on from 88-94.
Pull one of the ends off, or cut the hose, to see what the inside piece looks like.

Any idea on what this thing is?

Hi all...

Any ideas on what this thing might be? It was installed inline on the fuel line of the truck I'm helping my neighbor install a new engine in. It's a 1990 Chevy 1500 4x4, 5.7L, with TBI. I have absolutely no idea what this thing is. It isn't completely hollow, it's got a piece of metal inside of it that freely slides back and forth, but it isn't a check valve of any sort I don't think, I can easily see daylight through it. I'm guessing it was somebody's attempt to splice the line together, but the fact that it has that metal piece inside of it has me concerned....any guesses?
