1980 928 base automatic. ~135k. Owned for almost a year. After a great Sunday morning drive during our first cold morning in Houston, for H-Town that's anything below 50f, I pulled into my driveway and was greeted with thick white smoke bellowing from the engine. A lift of the the hood revealed oil burning off the engine. My biggest fear was a blown head gasket, however looks like I may have "lucked" out. After removing the air filter the problem was clearly this ruptured hose.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
What is in this line?
Ok to just remove or do I need to drain something first?
What type of hose should I buy to replace?

Was it just heat and old age that caused it? I'm sure being in contact with the intake manifold caused it to see higher temps than other hoses.

Thanks for the help in advance!

So, update my 928 cam as close to bursting into flames as one can get. Let this be a lesson to others out there, check these rubber fuel lines. Its pretty easy to check, just remove the air filter/intake. No telling how old mine were, maybe original 37 year old high temp hoses. They will not last forever. I am a lucky one it could have very easily started a bad fire.

Did you replace the lines?
Did you remove the MAF to get to the fuel lines. As you know, they are very tuff to get to.
