Quick E-fuel question...

I'm putting together ideas for E-fuel, and I'm wondering why more people don't use the stock supply lines at the heads? I'm thinking you could cut it off the "Y" at the pump, and flare or even use a compression fitting on them.

I also see people cut off the stock 90 degree fittings at the head. Are these an odd thread/fitting?

Thoughts?

Its just cleaner to use different lines, A lot of guys unbolt the pump and use an adapter to reuse the lines into the heads. I know the heads are threaded 1/8th npt.

I am going to be doing E fuel this weekend probably. I plan on doing just what you said. cutting the stock lines to use them how I want. Although I am probably just going to double clamp them and call it good till next time the turbo is out

Sure would save to have to pull the pedestal and up-pipe collector, too.

I would put a quick flare on the end of the line where you cut would be best. And one clamp would be enough, just make sure you use fuel injection clamps. I did this on the fuel system in my Fuel Injected Grand Wagoneer.

the double clamp does fine, done it plenty of times. I just had the turbo out and a day later my fuel pump started leaking. If I pull my up pipes I will be putting bellowed ones in and thats not in the cards right now
