Fuel pipe routeing

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys, on my  1975 Elite S1 I am having difficulty seeing where the fuel pipe runs along the chassis from rear to front, currently a previous owner has cable tyed a length of rubber hose to the brake pipe, which is obviously not right. I have ordered a new nylon pipe from SJ but where to route it  (and  secure it to the chassis)

Yep - Mike's right.  I'd forgotten about those holes.  I had to enlarge mine slightly to get a dash-6 braided hose to go through OK.  I remember being surprised that the original fuel pipe seemed to just be allowed to fret against these holes without any further support (clips).  Since I also had the body off I took the opportunity to fix mine in place with proper hose clips (I'm a bit paranoid about fuel hoses!).

Will brake pipe be large enough?

The brake pipe can be fashioned to produce a barb on the end and this is then inserted into the ethanol ready fuel pipe. The rigidity of the brake pipe enables you to thread it through the holes in the chassis bulkheads and the proper fuel line follows.
