Here'* some info I copied from the BPro post on it.
General Info
Supply line is 3/8" or -6AN
Return line is 5/16" or -5AN
Quote:
With mine I adapted the return line to 3/8" (-6AN) so I would be able to use all the same fittings seeing as 5/16" (-5AN) size fittings are more difficult to get a hold of
Connectors to keep the stock type fuel rails
Russel 3/8 Connector
Russel 5/16 Connector
The the fittings for the other side (assuming the plastic fuel line is heated and shrunk to the metal line w/o any clips.
3/8 Earl -6an fitting to connect to metal line
3/8 Earl -6an fitting to connect to metal line
I think this fitting will screw into the filter and head back to the tank
Screw on connector
A different connector suggestion
Swagelok SS-600-6-6an
Hose 10' braided rated for 300F and 1,000psi
10' Summit braided hose

Thought I posted it here, but can't find it.

Since that will end up getting done in Dixon if it does get done, I will grab that from the dealer. My step dad works at a dealership there so I can get it discounted even more.

If I was going to be doing it up here, it would probably cost me the same in gas and highway tolls to go pick one up than to just order it.

Tom grab that stuff for the fuel lines and whenever you get it we will do it, because it needs to be done ASAP for safety IMHO

Sounds like a plan. Maybe next weekend? I'll go double check the parts that I'm going to need and get it ordered.

I felt the same way when I saw my fuel lines bent and kinked. When we remember that these are glorified plastic..eeeek.

BTW, you'll enjoy the fact that the 2000+ fuel lines come up by the brake booster where there is decent room to do the work. I coerced the 97 lines out from behind the strut tower and around the AC drier to work on them near the alt.

Actually the gauges were cheap. The panda was the expensive part.
