Re: Fuel return line size?
I should of asked first but I need to make some progress on this car, after ordering my SS brake line from inline I saw they had a SS 1/2 fuel line and since I was told I need a return line I ordered....
SS 1/2 formed fuel delivery line
SS 3/8 formed return line (I know some say it should match and be 1/2 but Howard says I only need a 1/4 so I went in the middle)
I'm hoping to match the return line up to my sending unit and use that for the return since I have a 1/2 bung welded into the bottom of my tank.
Does anyone see a problem with this? should I cut off the tube on the sending unit that goes into the tank so it's not pushing it under the gas in the tank and let it just drop it on top or does it matter?
I need a good flaring tool and have seen Rigid mentioned alot so I will have to track one down since I will have alot of cutting for a filter, etc.
Let me know if anyone has any better ideas or sees any major problems here as I will be doing it next weekend.
