Fuel Lines

I'm building a 36 Ford Coupe on a boxed TCI frame. The brake lines are running along the inside of the driver frame rails. I plan to run an EFI, so I will need two fuel lines...Question is....Is there any reason why I should not run them just below the brake lines? This would give me a straight shot from the front to the rear side where the pickup connects.

Seems like I've heard that you want to run them down the passenger side and then cross over....I don't understand why one would want to create a situation where your required to cross over, expecially since the crossmember is where the transmission is located....

Also what are the variables in determining the appropriate fuel line size? Should it be the same size as the fuel pickup line?

Any recommendations on fuel line supply parts?

On SBC's with a mechanical pump ... the line should go down the right side ( where the mechanical pump is located )

I run them down the right side on my 32 ...



The fuel pickup and pump is on that side. If your fuel tank pickup is on the left side ( my 40 Ford was ) and that side is easy for you to get the fuel to your EFI ... go for it.

I strongly suggest a in line fuel filter. Especially if you are using a old original fuel tank.

Deuce - Who makes the filter that you use? It looks like a nice setup. Is it a changeable paper filter or?

AC-Delco

The metal cannister spins off and leaves a changeable cartridge.
The mount is 3/8 fuel line compatible ... I have the box it all came in @ the shop.
I can get it for you tomorrow ...

The mounting bracket, cannister and filter was about 20 dollars ...
I run one on my 32 roadster also.

Fuel Line

Thanks Duece...I dropped you an email before realizing I should have simply clicked the reply button....For others who might be facing the same question...My pick up is on the driver side and while I have a new tank, I still plane to use an in line. Based on info, I'll run my straight up the driver's side wich should make for an easy install.

How far towards the front did you run your line before picking up with flex? Pardon the simple questions, but this is my first rod build....

Hey Joe, I'm building a 36 5w also, great looking journal you have, looks like you're ahead of me in your build. If I understand correctly, after pulling the running gear out of a 86 Tbird last winter, there's quite a bit of pressure going through those lines for the injection system, be careful of what you use for the flex. If you're not sure of what to do and you don't get a better response than mine in a day or so, try asking in the engine section. Good luck with a great looking project, 36 Fords are the best looking car Henry ever built, imho. Dan

Thanks for the part number. Funny how it sits on the shelf next to a 32 Ford roadster model box. I wonder why?

I have owned the model and the box longer than I have owned the real roadster. My first birthday as a married man ... my wife gave me the 32 AMT model and said " We cannot afford the real thing ... but we will ... and soon "

She was not lying

Hey Duce, is that chambered exhaust going to sound like my off road exhaust on my 65 Corvette 327? Who makes them and how long are they (sections)?

Obviously she was right and you kept her ....or she kept you. Wouldn't ever give up that "girl" ever. When do you start on "her" car?

The 3W is hers ...



And she wants it done before the end of 2007.

As for the chambered exhaust ... they are 36 inches long. I bought them at Carlise PA swap meet. The guy had stacks of them. I believe he makes the repros for the 69 Camaros ...


After I bent the exhaust up and hung everything ... I had the entire exhaust coated with a Jet Hot thermal type barrier coating.

It is a neat part ... and been available for years.
I have the same exact thing on my 32 Roadster and have used this part since the late 60's on almost every thing I build.

Funny thing is ... sometimes the cannister is a anodized color and every now and then the cannister comes polished stainless steel. I have the polished one on my 32 Roadster. It has the pretty and shiny stuff on it ... the 3W will a driver ...
