    Anyone have a suggestion to a stock fuel line source?? I just don't trust the Ebay sellers anymore..And I won't purchase from The Parts Place either..

    Has anyone actually bought and used one from Cars or inline tube?? Concerned about fitment.

    Got one from inline tube and the fit was fine.

    All the major tubing companies make them. Inline, classic Tube, fine lines. They all require a bit of forcing and pulling but it’s not real bad.

    Yeah,I was told that by others but none have said they couldn't use the line The Inline Tube has been suggested by 3 people now.

    My aftermarket manifold means the factory fuel line is too short. Looking at the original, my novice bending skills are not going to reproduce that 3D masterpiece on the first, or the fifth try. Any suggestions?

    Use braided line with AN fittings if it doesn’t have to metal line.

    Take the stock or current line and just cut it in an appropriate place and put a WIX inline filter there,....more filtration is always good,..and it will solve your length issue you can then pull the small filter out of your current carb for little more volume in front of the needle seat assembly or leave it be up to you.
