1970 el camino fuel lines.

I have the 1/4 and 3/8 fuel lines that need replacing. There is one section above the rear shock that has two near 90 degree bends. I get the idea theses lines were installed on the frame before the body was installed at the factory. Does anyone know how to replace these lines?

Gotta lift the body. Or, cut & splice that section

Thank you billscamino for that information. I needed confirmation of what I was thinking before cutting those shiny new fuel lines. I guess tomorrow I'll get it done.

Hmm. I guess I should have asked, can I lift the body just enough on just that side, maybe 3/4s to get those lines in, or better to splice?

Re: 1970 el camino fuel lines.

You can lift the body in the rear but not with the front clip on it. If the dog house is off and you remove all the body mount bolts except for the front two, which need to be loosened, you can do it. There may be other considerations too such as steering shaft.

People donít like to have to think in high resolution. Jordan Peterson. Thatís why we are forced in to so many binary choices.

Thanks Alan f. That sounds like a lot of work. I guess I'm splicing instead.
