Fuel Lines...Pump to Carb

Currently running 1978 400sbc with edlebrock carb. Was considering braided fuel line from pump to carb but not sure I like the look. The block is black and valve covers are black aluminum. There is really no place to put the braided line except to lay it between the valve cover and intake. If I pick up a s/s hard line what do I get? I'm not sure of the routing so I am thinking a pump to carb line for the 78 engine I have?

Re: Fuel Lines...Pump to Carb

You might want to rethink about S/S line as it is hard to self seal and if not annealed correctly, the flare will split.

However, all is not lost. Get a length of #10 AWG THHN single strand wire form Home Depot/Lowes and make a mold of the line shape from pump to carb. Include all the angles and the female fittings from both ends. Take wire mold to your local Hydraulics & Pnuematics shop and have them make it for you with the male ends to fit your female fittings. They would have no problem in mild steel or alum tube. They may have to order S/S line, or you could from McMaster-Carr catalog www.mcmaster.com

Ask them to include the copper sealing washers, get extra. These copper washers will aid in sealing, same principle of sealing washers for a banjo fitting.

You also might call Classic Tube & Inline Tube to see want they have to offer.

Re: Fuel Lines...Pump to Carb

Here is what I used to feed into my Edelbrock carb.

After that I installed a fuel pressure gauge fitting and then ran -6 hose to the regulator and to the pump. I have it run in between the water pump and the block/head.
