Fuel lines on a '77 chevy 2500 pick up ?

Hey gang, I'm hard pressed to get my work truck going tonite.

My return line was leaking and I need to replace it. Can I substitute 5/16" for 1/4"?

Has anyone ever done this?

I'm out of 1/4", but I have plenty of 5/16"

Or should I wait and get the exact size?

Thanks, Ryan.

Hi Ryan.
If that's all you have, it should be fine. It's not a high pressure line anyway, it's the return line. The inlet side is 3/8"s. Just make sure you use clamps to squeeze it down if it's loose on the fittings.
