I'm having troubles tracking down a piece of steel fuel line for my 1993 cummins 5.9

its the line that goes in between the lift pump and the fuel filter block. I had to change my lift pump and its rust fused together and i've tried everything to get it to break loose. I have to have it running really soon so i can get to work.
I'm not left with many options.

Short term- would i be able to just cut the line and put a piece of rubber injector hose and clamps for a few weeks till i can order the factory line from cummins (they stock the part, but has to be shipped in for somewhere downsouth)

Yes you should be able to no prob my 95 has fuel line there instead of steel
Has a diesel pre heater plumbed in there has been that way since I got truck
Just make shure line is compatable with diesel fuel some fuel lines will break down with diesel quite quickly
