Re: 79n cherokee still dies at 45
I bought tubing and bent it myself. Originally, mine was steel tubing that ended about a foot past the firewall, not really attached to anything, but pretty close to the driver's fender. It was just kind of angled up and then they had clamped rubber hose onto that and it ran up over (not touching, but close) the exhaust manifold and the valve cover,. Then it went back down to the fuel pump (with the supply) while the return line branched off to the other side of the fuel filter. I don't think that was OEM. Anyway, when I re did it I took steel tubing all the way forward, following the fender until I 90'd out just before the washer reservoirs. Then I took both tubes out in rubber to the fuel pump (under the power steering pump) and on up to the filter and the carb. The fuel filter is still in an ackward spot, but it doesn't angle over the valve covers. The only problem I see is that if I ever change to dual exhaust, the fuel line will once again be in danger. I have thought about using a heat shield where the tubing is closest to the exhaust headers, but I haven't seemed to need to. I did make sure to run the return and supply lines as parallel as I could all the way through. I read somewhere that helps stabilize the temperature of the fuel. I hope that helps, feel free to e-mail me if I just totally confused you.
