    I am replacing the fuel line from the fuel pump to the carburetor on my 73 chevy blazer 350. I've been told by sev people they discontinued this part. Aftermarket hose(metal) is straight, you must bend yourself.Has approx 4 angles or bends. Can anyone tell me the best bending technique. I've screwed up 2 already. One from kinking and one just venting frustrations. HELP

    Get yourself a brake line bending tool. They have them at most hardware or autoparts stores. It will make smooth bends on small diameter lines.

    Dont mind the crude drawing and the crude way I bent my new fuel line, but this is how I did it and it worked good for quite a few years!

    I am planing to add a 6in. lift and I've neen told I might want to lenghten my break lines. Was considering SS lines anyways. Will check this site out unless you know of cheaper place. Thanx :)Zeppelin is the best but prefer Skynyrd

    I have heard Napa Auto Parts has some longer lines that are not that expensive. I think last week there was a thread about it. Or just take your old lines in and have them whip out the book and look it up.
    I love Skynyrd too!!!
    The bailid of Curtis Lowe is on of my all time faves!!!
    Best O luck [​IMG]
