Fuel Line Question(CJ)

Hello All

Quick question . I am in the midst of restoring my 79 CJ5 . This guy in the local paper has a 84 CJ7(for parts) which has new brake lines( stainless steel) and fuel/return lines. Plus a new poly fuel tank . Now I know I should know this BUT [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img] are the fuel lines similar ? I think the frames were the same length just the tub was longer on the 7 . Right ? I can get these new s/s lines and the plastic tank for CHEAP . I just wanted to know if they are interchangeable .

Re: Fuel Line Question(CJ)

I am pretty sure a Cj7 frame is longer than a CJ5 frame.

but the brake lines/tank should be the same, the hard lines for fuel and fuel return will be about 10 inches too long for you though...

thats what I think, lets see what the experts say

To my best knowledge OzarkJeep has it right. The CJ7 frame is longer and the fuel lines will also be longer. I think that some of the brake lines are the same.

Yep. You'll have too much fuel line, but you can cut a section out and splice it with a piece of hose and 2 clamps.
