Well I have my work cut out for me :))))

Well my long awaited package arrived today. Yes ladies and gentlemen, the package bearing the "HOWELL" name on it. That's right. Can we say FUEL INJECTION. WOOHOO Looks like it will be a good winter after all. That and I finally accumulated all the parts for the oba setup. I'm gonna be a busy little bee this weekend haha. I do have one question. Where can I find a roll of 3/8" fuel line? Do you think the local parts stores will carry it????

I used 2 sections of hard brake line... it worked just fine and is avaliable at almost any autoparts store.

for the fuel line, go to AutoZone or whatever your local discount auto parts store is and buy a SPOOL! if you buy it by the foot, they charge you about 3x as much. i know i pay less than $10 for a 25' spool of low pressure 3/8" fuel line. i keep 1/4", 5/16" and 3/8" spools "in stock" in my garage because it really stinks when i have to drive 40 minutes round trip to buy a foot of hose. matt

Like Larry I bought a 5' stick of 3/8" brake line. It was plenty long to go from the fuel pump on the frame rail to the rubber fuel line in the engine compartment. Brake line is a bit more rigid than fuel line on a roll, but still soft enough to bend by hand without kinking it.
