How safe is my steel fuel line that is about 1/2" from my header? This is a restoration, so I have no past history how it worked previous. Is there a chance of any ignition from high heat? I've ran the car for only about 1/2 hour and all was fine, but I'm still concerned.
Thanks

You have the orig fuel line coming up the frame rail to its top and turning inward just behind the upper control arm, then running forward between the engine stand and UCA ending at the fuel pump. Your set of headers come close to the fuel line right behind the UCA.

Mind does the same and I haven't had any ill effects. The most proper way to run the line is either inside the frame rail and exit at the f/pump, or on the outside of the frame rail, then up and over exiting to the f/pump.

If it really concerns you, you can buy thermal wrap from Jegs or Summit. It may not look great, but it'll give you some peace of mind. I would feel the same way as you.
Besides, the cooler you keep the fuel the better.
