Project SBC - Good Weekend

Had a good weekend.
Finished the stainless steel brake and fuel lines...
And...got the tub back onto the frame....

Hopefully that light at the end of the tunnel is not an oncomming train....

Re: Project SBC - Good Weekend

Your plumbing looks great! Bend it yourself or use kits? With the difficulties I had bending the fuel lines, I'm glad I got a kit for the brakes.

At first glance the axel vent looks small, but I guess it should be sufficient. Where does it go? I connected all of the vents and ran them into the air cleaner.

That axle vent looks like an ARB air line.

Re: Project SBC - Good Weekend

Look great but I could swear there should be another cross brace by the shock towers.

Is that a grounding strap by the starter??
It would be a good time to make a bigger heat shield for the starter if your running headers.

Also it looks like your fuel supply line is smaller than your return line. Is this normal on a Chebby setup?

Re: Project SBC - Good Weekend

The blue line is the ARB air line.
Yes, I bent the 3/8's stainless steel lines myself...with a little help from "grunt".....the one for the return up by the TBI was a real bit*h.

Both the fuel and return are 3/8 stainless. The return can be smaller but I already had the 3/8. At $5/ft, you don't want t waste it....

Cross brace? If there should be one, I would like to see a pick of what it looks like.

Not a ground stap...that is the wiring harness for the engine...most of it is going throug that hole just to the right of the battery tray. I'm re-using the original hole and computer bracket.

With luck I will crank it over (or at least try) by next week some time.

Re: Project SBC - Good Weekend

Looks like nice work. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/thumbsup.gif[/img] I don't know if I like the rear brake flex line against the high pressure fuel line though. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img] I'd probably reroute that if you can. Looks like you're gonna need a longer section of hose anyway...

Re: Project SBC - Good Weekend

I have all but the one that is looks to be about a foot in front of the gas tank.
I'm assuming that this is only on the scrabler.

The hose rubbing on the brake line....not as issue now....I was short one adapter...as soon as it was put on, the hose is bowed enough so that it does not rub on the brake line. Sharp eys....
