I FINALLY bit the bullet and bought a new fuel system for my T (completely stock, of course). However, I'm not sure how I should run the fuel line. I bought the clamps for it, but I just don't know where they go. Does anyone have any pictures or diagrams?
Here is a picture from an April, 1922 Ford service bulletin, note that it recommends that the line crosses below the exhaust pipe:
My installation is similar, but outside the frame rail. The closest it gets to the exhaust pipe is about two and a half inches below it. One person suggested it would be better without the support attaching the line to the transmission housing.
I'm re-doing the fuel line on my 1915 now. I've located the round tank in the truck bed for better head pressure (and because I wanted to) so my routing will be similar to yours Steve.
Steve, have you ever driven this car or is it a fresh rebuild? I don't see any oil drips anywhere!
Still rebuilding. Engine & trans done, rear end out for overhaul. Also installing correct drive shaft tube, rear spring, and radius rods.
Suggest splitting a piece of fuel hose and slide it over the fuel line where it passed near the exhaust pipe. Wrap the hose with A.C. aluminum adhesive tape. A simple mod. to keep from having vapor lock.
First of all, you failed to mention the year of the car! The early T's were a little different than the later ones posted above.
The only thing I would do different is to put a loop or ess in the line between the sediment bowl and the clamp at the trans cover. This will add a point of flex between the body and the engine.
Thank you all for the comments. I should have no problems routing it and making it work!
