1967 pump to tank line

I am stuck on installing a pre- bent stainless steel line. Is there instructions online or can someone offer advice? Getting it over the rear axle ls the foremost problem TIA

For what it's worth, don't be afraid to bend it a little if you have to - just don't kink it. I installed all new SS brake lines on my '68 recently, and there was simply no way the front-to-rear brake line was going in without bending it unless the body was off the frame or the car was on a lift and it wasn't either of those. Bend it back as best you can and move on. Worked for me.

Man I had forgotten how much I paid for my Hein-Werner HW93696A 2-1/2 Ton Air Operated End Lift (don't remember it being any where near that expensive but then again I bought it over forty five years ago. With this tool and a set of four five ton NAPA jack stands similar to these imports:

you can quickly and easily get the frame of the car two feet in the air allowing the suspension to drop and gain access to the underside from a creeper.

Of course at this price the front end lift is approaching the price of a suicidal Chinese import two pole 4,000 pound lift that is as likely to drop the car on top of you as it is to work.

Funny Dave.


this may not be the 'right' answer, and 'cards on the table' I've not had to install all new pre-bent fuel lines - but one option I would personally be ok with is to cut it where necessary and then use one of those brass compression fittings to put it back together. Did that on my tranny line and never had an issue. Life Saver.
