Re: Fuel line size

I would say 1/2". I used -12 push-loc ? to the pump/filter and 1/2" aluminum line to the regulator and then -8 braided to the carb.
Worked well on my buddies N/A 505 BBC @ 9.1X Nova Now spraying to mid 8's (separate system), so I copied as I'll always have room to grow.

Re: Fuel line size

-12 from the tank to the pump, -10 from the pump to the regulator, -8 from the regulator to the carb, and an -8 or -10 return.
