Default 1988 Subaru RX Fuel Line replacement Help

Hey everyone I am trying to find out a way to upgrade and fix the fuel lines in my Subaru RX turbo. Currently it is leaking from the main four lines below.

Another close up view.

All the lines in the rear of this car are terrible. I need advice on what I should buy to fix these. I know I cant use compression fittings but with a car this rare I do not know where to look for these lines.

Also I would like to find a better replacement for the external fuel pump pictured below.

I am going to swap the EA82 for this car out for an NA EJ25 so the fuel system has to be fixed and serviced properly.
Any advice would be appreicated very much.

It is for a brake-system that you cannot use compression fittings.

You will have to effect fabricating your own lines. Even for newer vehicles pre-bent fuel-lines are not available.

You can also flare each open-end, use rated fuel-hose, and pinch-style clamps (single-pinch or double-pinch), to connect the lines together. It is not required that the fuel-lines be connected via union or compression fitting.

If you must replace all lines, then you will have to cut each in a staggered fashion if possible. By doing so, this will allow for mating each line together without much interference from the next repaired couple-joint, and so-on.

thanks for the advice I believe I am going to use high pressure Nylon fuel line to patch it all together using the method you just said.
