FUEL LINES--LENGTH ETC

Post by RON SMITH » Fri Jul 12, 2013 10:28 am

Putting my 1776 together with Twin Dell 36s, can anyone tell me how much fuel line i will need and the best place to source good quality , fuel line will be running behind the fan housing, will also be having electric fuel pump, filter will be located under chassis.

Thanks

Be careful with the hose you use, i've just been finding out that the high amounts of ethanol used in modern petrol can over relatively short periods of time, have a really detrimental effect on rubber hose.

Try to look for R9 hose, which is Bio Fuel proof.

These guys are very helpful, and the prices are good;
