    R.I.P. Brian Thompson you have always been a great friend, you will always be remembered.

    Wow I just got a post on Facebook about this, and had to come here to see if it was true. I only talked to Brian on the phone, bought some parts from him. He will be missed, My thoughts and prayers are with his family. Too sad.

    fuel line

    So here is what I am going to do. Order a 3/8 line and reuse my 5/16 as a return line. Modify the sender to have a 3/8 output. I will run the 5/16 in its original location and the 3/8 on the inside. Well back to the garage and do some work this afternoon. :cool:

    fuel line

    Ronnie I figured that would be the case no use to have a 5/16 sending unit and 3/8 line. The thing is that the car had duel exhaust and 5/16 fuel lines, however that was all done by the previous owner when they put in the 350 that was in the car when I got it. The car was fairly messed up...

    fuel line

    I tried searching and did not find an exact answer for my question so here it is. My Car originally had a 5/16 fuel line, I am putting in a 409 do I need to upgrade to a 3/8 fuel line or will I be OK with my existing 5/16. I am trying to keep cost down so what ever I can re use I want to.
