    Correct fuel line to purchase (Pump to carburetor)

    What is the correct fuel line to purchase (Pump to carburetor)?

    Any suggestions for an aftermarket supplier?

    Looking for a stock replacement.

    Thanks!

    Sincerely,

    Ian.

    Correct fuel line to purchase (Pump to carburetor)

    Hi Ian,
    What year van?

    I will speak for mainly 1st Gen. As best as I understand it, there are two different fuel lines. 1964 to 1965 1st design & 1965 2nd design to 1967 (& later L6 ?)

    The first design is routed in front of the valve cover & mates with a "rebuildable" style fuel pump (AC 40530) .

    The second design is routed over the valve cover & mates with the "crimp" style fuel pump (AC 40207).

    Well with that said - For the 1st design I have bought lines for the cars, Nova etc, & the pick-up trucks from the vendors. No joy as the fuel pump configuration/interface is unique to the vans.

    For my personal use I have fabricate both lines as shown in the photos above. I have a real ROUGH time line by VIN from when the change occurred. You can email me if you want to have a discussion on the subject gfleduc@hotmail.com.
