Phillip, I used a piece of factory GM hard vapor line from the front of a GMC light duty truck where it leaves the vapor canister hose and mounts to the frame...

I thought it would lend a more "factory" look to my finished project...(I know, I know, nobody can see it anyway...but I will know.)

Also, it was the only piece of mandrel bent pipe in 5/16th's I could find in the shop when I decided to do this...

I like the way you did the punch idea in the hole for more surface area...my pipe was bent at a 45* angle so that wouldn't really work for me...I brazed mine, so it didn't look as good as yours when I was done...(there's really no way to test my seal, so I applied Right-Stuff to the outside of my pipes to assure a total seal.)

Looking good. Still waiting to see how the final gas tank set up works. I am looking at an LS3 with a 6spd out of a wrecked 2010 Camaro now. Oh the decisions!!

I wasn't lucky enough to have a pickup assy with 2 pipes in it...so I modified mine like Phillip did...


5/16th's hole drilled and elongated...


Needed to remove the end of the supply line tube so it can accept the Swagelok 37* AN fitting...



Swagelok stainless steel fitting...



"Special" holding fixture to keep everything in line before brazing...



Semi finished project...(I'm going to run my lines through the "hole" that the sender wire came through.)

When you say lines through the sender hole, what lines are you talking about? Also did you figure out the strainer issue on your pump?

The lines would be the wires to power the pump and to the gas gauge.

Should have the pump and strainer in this weekend, (the whole tank end of this buttoned up), and hopefully most of the lines ran...

Re: Project Greenbrier

Mike that turned out excellent. It will be copied on my wagon when it comes time for a pump install.

Re: Project Greenbrier

Steve we can do ours together, just bring the tank and parts down to Marana. Already did the Nova, the wagon tanks look to be easier.

Thanks...it took me a lot more time to convince myself it could be done...and a LOT more time on different mockups...than it did to actually fab It up once I had it the way I wanted it.

Oh man, I'd love to...!!!

It was 7* outside the other morning when I went out to feed cows...

I could soak up some AZ weather!

(If you have time, I would take up Phillip's offer to help...from what I've seen him post...he has excellent fab skills and plenty of talent.)

Re: Project Greenbrier

It is only in 62° today because of the rain. But by mid week the 75° temps will be back

Thanks for the kind words.

I may take you up on that if I ever get a free weekend. Starting to line up parts now. Still have to get a motor first. May be getting the trans next week.

Re: Project Greenbrier

SLOWLY making progress...

got the power steering worked out today...used the factory hose for the 72 Chevelle...NAPA part #NPS 71619...$18.81


Shot from the bottom...





Top...had to bend the hard line a little right before it connects to the hose to clear the pressure port on the sector.





I apologize for the "bundle of snakes" look of my lines...I should have left the return line off, but I didn't want to leak fluid all over. The plan is to run a PS cooler eventually.

I'll get some better pics from the front tomorrow.
