Just curious who "they" would be?They say you should never place a fuel filter before the mechanical pump. The factory used the brass filters in the inlet fitting on holley's. I have never used them, as they seem to be very restrictive and will plug easy.
I use a fliter screen coming out of the sender and then going to the hard line on the frame rail
The '69 Z fuel line kits use a different size inlet fitting than the over the counter 4150 carbs come with. You can get the right inlet fittings on ebay and probably Summit or Jegs to make it work.Will the factory dual feed gas line from a 69 Z work with a street avenger carb on a 350 small block? I think it should....if it does what about a filter? Thanks
I used re-pop Z28 fuel lines on the Street Avenger on my 327. It works fine. I had to swap out the inlets on the Holley to make it work with the 5/16 lines.Will the factory dual feed gas line from a 69 Z work with a street avenger carb on a 350 small block?

Steiner, before I got back and read your post I called my NAPA store and they told me that filter is a 20 micron as well. Between the 10 micron filter that most "name brand" gas stations use and the fact that I do check and/or replace my fuel filters when the begin to show signs of becoming at all restrictive, I feel fine keeping it setup this way which seems to be your feeling as well. Thanks for your input :thumbsup:The NAPA filter you listed is the same as a Wix 33033 which is rated at 20 microns. Googling around, I found a Holley TBI install sheet that includes one of those that gets installed before the electric pump and has a 10 micron after the pump. So, you'd have to assume that it would be OK before a mechanical pump.
BTW, most "name brand" gas stations use a 10 micron filter on the pump so you've gotta work pretty hard to clog up your fuel system regardless.
Nope. The stock Z/28 setup only used the bronze filters insided the fuel inlets - no external filter. :thumbsup:As to the fuel filter, the stock setup was an inline 3/8" filter inserted in the rubber fuel hose between the metal fuel line that terminated on the sub frame and the inlet to the fuel pump which would work fine for you.
