Getting ready to run my brass fuel line from the tank to the carb, does anyone have an ACCURATE picture of how this is supposed to run? Since my car was built in 11' the tank sediment bowl is located on the end of the tank.
Thanks for any help as always!
Phil Mino has made a web site with pictures of his nice unrestored november 1911 Touring: http://www.fordfarm.net/11Car1.html
In one picture you can see some of the routing with the floorboards lifted: http://www.fordfarm.net/11CarMisc-1.html
Looks close to the exhaust..
Note, many repro exhaust pipes differs in their routing from the Ford originals and may cause a need to move the fuel line somewhat.
Thanks Roger, I had looked at Phil's site, which is great just didn't have enough detail in this area.
Bump, anyone with a correct picture?
How about contacting Phil Mino?
I'll send you some pictures, Bob.
Always appreciate the help, just want to get it correct!
Thanks Herb & Keith!
This is the way the fuel line is routed on this late '11 car:
Line leaves outboard sediment bulb and crosses over the frame just ahead of the front seat heel panel.
Line is curved down at that crossover point and runs slightly above and about an inch inboard from the lower part of the frame rail.
Line gradually curves back into frame rail and goes behind the pan arm block at the bottom.
About 2" ahead of the pan arm block, the line makes a rather sharp curve inward toward the engine.
Line is curved again (more gracefully this time) to mate up with the inlet elbow on the carburetor.
WOW! Thanks Phil that info and the detailed pictures do the trick, I'll be plumbing in the morning! That's what I really like about this hobby, everyone is willing to share knowledge. BTW, before I saw this post tonight, I had just sent you an email.
Many thanks to you & also got some pics from Keith. thanks a bunch.
