    In my never-ending saga of a stinkin motor swap, my next question is should I run new lines all the way from the pump, or can I somehow just run rubber lines from the ones that are already run? And how do I tell which one is the return line? And do I still need it hooked up even w/ the carb? Ouch that's alot of questions. I'll think of some more though, trust me. Thanks

    You can easily determine which line is the outlet by simply cycling the fuel pump with the lines disconnected to see which one has fuel coming out. Yes you can adapt the fuel line to your carb by adding a portion of fuel line to the carb and plugging the return line back to the tank. You also will have to remove the in-tank pump because it is too high of pressure for a carb application. The factory TBI pumps are about 13 PSI and a carb requires only about 6 PSI.
