TPI Lines

I'm making the switch from a carb back to fuel injection and having a hard time locating the steel lines that attach to the fuel rail. I know that brake lines with stands some pretty high pressures. That being so, can I use say a 3/8th brake line as a substitute?

Absolutley. double wall steel line like brake line is perfect. Just remember to make the jump from the body to the engine point with some hose so it flexes with engine movement. You can use regualer Fuel Injection hose and then flare the end and put flare to hose barb adapters on it. use a fuel injection style clamp with a real nut and bolt not screw clamps like a radiator or carb fuel line clamp . Oetecker clamps are ok if you have the tool.
I would surf the U pull it yard first if at all possible. Maybe there is one setting there waiting for you
