Fuel sending units

hey gents

just a quick question on fuel sending units for a 66 chevelle. what other diffrences are there other then, some being 5/16 and others 3/8. I'm assuming that means one outlet line is bigger then the other, will either or, fit the same gas tank?

asking only cos I would like more volume of that there gas ilene to reach the front. course got a nice fuel pump going in as well

thanks in advance
TC

Stock lines are usually 3/8, high performance 1/2", and methanol spring car racing engines 3/4 to 1"

Yes either will fit. Only the pickup tube that goes into tank is larger. I think my 64 Chevelle had 5/16" factory with 283Eng. I cut redrilled & brazed a 1/2" tube in. I probably only needed 3/8" tho'.
