    Has anyone tried to buy the two gas lines that go from the filler neck to the tank on a K5? I keep getting told they don't exist, someone has to have these dang things!

    I had the same prob with my '73. It needs a 1 3/8" line, and all I could find was 1 1/4" or 1 1/2". I went to a Chevy dealer and he said he could get it for like $40. I had him write down the p/n and got it from GM PartsDirect for only $13 or so.

    I went to a local hose company and they had it available cut to fit. I initially bought one from a parts vendor and it was the wrong size.

    I believe there was a wire running in the larger of the two hoses that I had to cut. It was pretty stiff.

    I got my 1 and 3/8 at a local parts store. I checked 5 places and this one had just enough to do the jimmy. I was told you can also ask for hydraulic hose. If the hose stands up to hydro fluid gas won't be a problem.

    If nothing else LMC as stated earlier.


    My metal filler line was repaired by someone before I got it. I replaced it when I redidi my gas cap and used stuff from a tahoe but then I relocated the filler and used an inset bling bling door $$$$$$$$$$$

    i bought mine from LMC. it worked fine, but after two years i have cracking and dryrot. not saying anything bad about LMC or anything. just wondering if there is a better more durable design? the hose was a piece of standard wire reinforced hose(USCG approved, so something tells me it might also be available from a marine shop) that any hydraulic or commercial hose shop would carry.
