New fuel line after intake and carb change.
#1
I have a 351 Cleveland that was originally a 2v motor, and in an air conditioned 71' Mach 1

. I have had the motor rebuilt and added an Edelbrock performer rpm air gap manifold and a Holly Avenger carburetor. The car no longer has air conditioning. It appears to me that the original fuel line from the fuel pump is not going to work.
Have any of you had this issue? If so, what fuel line did you use to replace the original?

Thanks in advance.

I make my own steel lines to suit the position of the carburetor fuel inlet. It looks like you could adjust the line you have to get pretty close to a straight shot.

+1 I used some stainless fuel lines and a tubing bender to make my own. I used a wire coat hanger to make the template first.

73 Grandé H Code. Headman long tube headers, T-5 Transmission, 3.70 Traclok, Lowered 1" all around, Aussie 2v heads w/ 2.19 intake, 1.71 exhaust, screw in studs, full roller cam 608/612 lift 280/281 duration LSA 112, Quick Fuel 750 CFM double pumper, AirGap intake.

You could find fuel bowls, or a carb, that supports 60s, early 70s plumbing. Spendy, but looks right. Chuck
