Default '88 Camry Fuel Line

I am repairing rusted fuel lines (feed and return) on an '88 camry with a
3S-FE engine and would like to by the line before I start to mess with the
rust. My problem is that I cannot get to the line with a caliper to measure
it without disturbing it.. Would anyone know the size of the line? There are
also rusted brake lines close to the line to be repaired, What would the
size of the brake lines be? I am going to be cobbling sections into the
lines hoping that I do not have to replace the whole line.

It should be about 3/8 inch. The best thing to do is remove the rusted
areas, and if you can, keep as much of the original line as possible. Make
sure you use high pressure fuel line, and slip the 'patches' over whatever
metal remains.

I *didn't* do thid, and wound up replacing six sections for a total of
about a foot. If I could do it again, I would take out the worst section
and slip the line over the rest.

Buy some extra; you may find you have more than one leak that may appear
when you patch the big one!
