Hello:
I'm in the process on a frame-on restification of a '72 chevelle conv.

I'm running the original 350 with minor mods so I don't feel larger fuel lines than stock are needed? Agree?

I want to replace all the dry rotted rubber hoses connecting the various tubing fuel lines to the tank. Any helpful hints?

Is there a certain hose brand I should replace with or is any rubber line stated for fuel acceptible?

Does anyone know the specific hose sizes (diameters) I will need?

Thanks in advance.

You mean this guys on the second page already??
On my tank hoses I just put in what I found from the chain stores. Works but not original.

Any quality hose (like Gates, Goodyear, ... for example) sold as fuel resistant should work.

Main fuel - 3/8'
Vapor - 5/16"
Return - 1/4"

Just don't route the line from the tank under the axle like the guy I bought my car from did!

That's a great tip on the axle routing.
I guess soldering the tubing connections is also a bad idea?????????

Thanks for the replys.
