fuel injection line question

I need a little help on fuel injection lines. My dad and I are installing a fuel injected 302 with the aod out of a 89 lincoln town car into a 63 f100 and will be starting on the fuel system soon. I bought a msd 2225 fuel pump on jegs recomendation. I am looking for the most effecient way of making lines from the pump to the 302, and the return line. What kind of line and connectors should I use? and if anyone has done this and you have any pictures it would be greatly appreciated.

you can buy Fuel injection grade rubber hose and use that. Use the true fuel line clamps for it not a gear drive clamp.I will post a photo.

Or you can use plastic line that is sold in bulk length which would be my choice.It uses barb fittings and is easy to assemble and will take the pressure and not leak.(very important)
It would be recommended to run the braided from the body where you make the jump to the engine.
I would suggest to use as much of the donor car system as possible if you are on a budget.
I have taken the crimp fittings off by cutting them with a cutoff wheel and replacing them with rubber and clamps or plastic where I can. Many of fords fitting (on the vintage you have) are barbed under the clamp/crimp shell. If you cut the shell off and remove the line you will see what i mean.You can choose to put on the rubber line or the plastic on those fittings.
Or you can buy the high dollar stuff, but a little practice and some hands on and making fuel lines will be a snap.
If none of it makes sense google inlinetube.com there site may help

Like I said If it were me, I would use all the fittings from the donor car and run plastic line from bulk, and the stainless from the body to the engine

The second picture is a common repair piece from dorman. I used it to show the plastic and the barb piece. I have used those a time or two for repairs.
The third picture is the garter spring type fitting that you lincoln uses. Note the barbed end. Perfect for plastic or rubber and FI style clamps. The donor car will have them, you just have to cut the crimp shells off and salvage them.
The first picture is what you would use at the filter and the tank unit.
The roll of bulk plastic (nylon) is available at tooloutfitters.net chck your local parts store first , the topparts guy would know.
