Default Fuel line leak

Hello all my ranger started leaking gas. Its coming from the braided line. Its mounted to the frame rail then heads to the motor. Its leanings at what looks to be were two parts of line were joined together at the factory. Its really crusty. I can't find a replacement online and I look inactive junk yard with no luck. What other options do I have. Thank you

What year Ranger?

1997 and older had 2 fuel lines,
Pressure line from the Fuel Filter to injector rail on engine, 30psi pressure
Return line, no pressure just flow, it connects to fuel pressure regulator on engine and runs to the top of the gas tank

1998 and up, just has 1 fuel line, 60psi pressure, fuel filter to engine

You can replace the fuel filter to engine lines, which reads like the one that is leaking, by making one with correct ends, which changed by year and engine size

I've had this issue before, if the crimps on the engine side braided lines are bad, your only options are junkyard hunting for replacement lines, or converting the fittings on the engine to -6 an fittings and running new lines, Ford had a listing for them a few years ago but recently they have become an obsolete part as far as I know. If you live around a good hydraulic shop you may be able to get them to trim down the lines and crimp on some female JIC (AN) fittings and adapt to the frame lines with some of the many readily available AN to springlock adapters available from jegs and summit racing. I was very fortunate to be able to find a perfect set in a junkyard near me, which is very difficult to do in the northeast.
