My car has been sitting since 1983. I am pulling the tank and having it cleaned. The guy at the carb shop says all I need to do is blow out the lines. I was thinking of just replacing them. Any thoughts? How difficult is it to replace the line?

I replaced my front to rear line and it went in in about a half hour. It wasn't hard for me. There are some people that have had real problems though. The only tight spot on mine was at the front where the line enters the engine bay as it snakes between the floor and the frame rail. It took a little pushing, but went in fine.

Fuel Lines, well, I just did mine this weekend and put in a new stainless steel line, getting it in through the frame rail on the passenger's side was a bitch because of all the monovering with it.

If your doing a full restoration you might have coper lines on there, its best to goto stainless steel!.

I replaced both fuel and brake lines with stainless. I looked at several vendors, including the manufacturers, and resto houses. They all seemed about the same to me. I ended up getting them from D&R, because I was placing a large order, and got the freight prepaid. They bolted up with mimimum hassle. fuel pump to y-block took a little wrestling to bend it away from the heater outlet on the intake.
Speaking of y-blocks, ae the ones with the bracket to the intake(used on L-78 and L-72) available anywhere? All the catalogs list them, but never in stock, or coming soon.
