Fuel Hose Kit
#11
Just a few comments.
First definitely use Fuel Injector hose. I had the same issue with gas on the outside, but it's on the inside that counts. One would assume that the manufacturers of these high priced hoses would make sure it is gas proof inside and out!! I guess not though.
Replace all the rubber lines with FI hose including under the hood. I do use a steel  inline fuel filter between the apron and pump, not all agree, but I have zero issues with a filter in this location, my choice.
As for the main tank line, I chose SS, but had to do some "adjustments" to get it to fit. This has been discussed before. As I use a Holley carb, I also made up a better fitting line from the pump to carb. The only rubber in that line is a short length at the pump to take up vibrations.
PLEASE do not rely on those damn gear clamps. Not only are they UGLY, they invariable fail at some point. I use correct spring or squeeze clamps, those ones with the two 'ears' that you use a special tool to squeeze together to tighten. (pliers will work in a "pinch". Excuse the pun.)

I am aware of needing more fuel hose from tank vent to vapor line and another hose from vent line to fuel vapor canister. What would be a good hose?

There is also a rubber fuel line in the engine bay below the master cylinder, don't know if you knew that, I didn't, but found it thanks to this site...…………...

Yeah 2 pieces of hose for vapor line, 4 pieces of hose for fuel line.

…….. and those too. Forgot to mention that type. I think I meant to say I use the pinch style on hoses that I will not be taking apart any time soon.
