As some of you may be aware, I am in the process of putting together everything for FIRE (my 1973 Mach 1 with a 545).

I am currently looking at obtaining the Russell Fuel System (641520) as one of the last item that I will need. Doing an Internet search, I have found the kit advertised at @ $50 - $60 cheaper (not to include free shipping) than that offered by the Major players at this place:

I am not familiar with this entity and was wondering if any of you have used their services? If so, please advise as to the quality of that service.

Thanks!

A quick google search reveals some complaints. Here is an example:

BBB search isn't encouraging either. No personal experience though.

THANKS, Tommy.

I will look a bit deeper into the company and just might challenge JEGS on a "price match".Smile

I don't know about the company and I've never used the Russell kit. However, you might consider using aluminum tubing instead of the flexible line. It is easy to work with and yields a very clean and professional look when installed. Just an idea. Chuck

Yes, Chuck I went back and forth on what to use until I ran across this kit. Incidentally, the kit is suppose to come in either stainless steel or braided nylon. My intent is to use the stainless steel as I have always had great results with it.

I understand there are a lot of professional racers who swear by the use of aluminum fuel lines but I really like the idea of this complete kit which gets rid of (in my mind) some of the possible negative situations like using the wrong anchor materials for the line. I have also come to understand that the aluminum is not as solid as the stainless steel and sometimes has problems with vibrations.

I do appreciate your input though.
