70' Skylark fuel line question

    My car is a Chevy Small Block 283 swap (not my doing). I'm redoing the fuel system as the old tank was gumming up the lines and I came across something that caught my eye. The main fuel line running along the frame of the car ends with a taper leading to a very small hole (picture attached). Does anyone know why the line is this way? Should I widen it since I'm running a completely non-stock setup?

    I'm running a return-less setup with a mechanical fuel pump.

    Thanks, Jackson

    Never saw that before,somebody did that on their spare time.Maybe he was getting too much gas,so he put that in.Don't forget,Chevy's don't like as much gas as Buicks.Bruno.

    Maybe a breather. Obviously someone was changing thing since they changed engines. Some non stock stuff.

    That might be a fuel line swapped in from a Chevelle for the 283 Chevy since Chevy's aren't as powerful as Buicks:p:p:p:p
    The stock Buick fuel line was flooding the little Chevy:eek:
    Seriously tho, that's weird, never seen it.
