Hello

I had a problem while taking my quadrajet out, I had to cut the fuel line because i didn't managed to unscrew the line on the carburetor side.
I see that summit sells a kit to replace the fuel line between the pump and the carburetor but i don't know if it will fit:
SUM-CARBKIT1
My carburetor is an original Rochester quadrajet from 67 and the fuel line as the same ends on both side: pump and careburetor but on summit kit there are two different ends.

Thank you for your help

Guillaume

The "correct" type solid steel formed fuel lines are available from the restoration suppliers such as 'Ground-Up' (sponsor - link at bottom of page).
The line will be 5/16" or 3/8" depending on your engine type.
These lines are preformed to fit like the originals.
I would not recommend you try to use a "Universal" type line as it may hit or rub in places and lead to failure. Trying to bend preformed hard steel lines can lead to cracks and leaks.
Hope this helps;
John

ps; where in France are you? I go to the Grenoble area a couple times a year.

Thank you for your answer.
I found someone who does custom oil or fuel lines.
I think i will ask him a custom one, it will be cheaper then to buy one in the US and let it come here. (I hope there won't be any leaks)

I am from Strasbourg near the German border.
If never you come there, send me a mail and i will show you my car.
