Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2017: Fuel line routing
Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Willis Jenkins on Tuesday, October 03, 2017 - 08:38 am:

So, I ordered everything from the gas tank to the carburetor for our '23. I am replacing the rubber fuel line the previous owner had in place. Everything I ordered is to put it back to stock appearance. I even got the directions on how to bend the gas line. The problem is I don't see how bending the gas line that way is going to work? It states to put an "S" bend in the line offsetting the line 6 and a half inches. That just does not seem like enough to me? Can anyone here provide a picture of their stock gas line routing? I assume the gas line runs between the exhaust pipe and the engine block, correct?
Thank you for your time,
Willis

I can't take the credit for these. This was posted by somebody else and I saved them to my files. Hope they help.

Thanks Eric

that's what I was hoping would get posted for Willis.

And Willis...use rubber hose cut to fit as packing for the carb and sediment bowl fittings...forget the felt packing. The dealers sell this little rubber packing but it is simply fuel hose that will press over the fuel line and still stuff into the packing area of the fitting...it's about a 3/8" long fuel hose bit.

No problem here with the felt packing, but I'm for anything that works !

Hmm. My felt packing is 11 years old. It's not leaking. I better replace it. :-)

I bought the felt packing but, not sure now if I should use it?

Slide the pack nut on the tubing, then the packing, insert tubing into the fitting until it bottoms, push the packing and nut to engage the threads, finger tighten, then cinch up the pack nut firm, try for leaks, if you get a dribble, tighten until it stops.
