Fuel line pump to tank

Hey guys, I was just looking into a new OEM fuel line pump to carb. Anyone know where the line actually ends towards the rear?? Is it by the tank?? Do I have to remove the tank to install?? Thanks.

Nope, you don't have to remove the tank; there's a rubber hose connection between the sender pipe on the tank and the end of the main fuel line on the rear rail.

Re: Fuel line pump to tank

If you've got subframe connectors it's going to be interesting. Was just thinking about that the other day....wonder if the best thing to do is cut and flare the line to make it a two piece.

No Steiner, stock frame. It looks like someone made it a two piece though because it has what looks like a union in the line.

Re: Fuel line pump to tank

Previous owner of mine bought a coil of 3/8 copper water line and ran this squiggly, twisty line from the tank to the pump.
I kept the copper line as a memento.

I'm surprised you didn't sell it and buy yourself another Little Debbie.
