    ...The Fuel line that goes from the fuel pump too the Carb...

    How do you get that thing out? The threading on the fitting for the carb is leaking, and I want to replace it. But I cant get it out...its stuck. Is there a way to get it out? Or do I have to take alot of other crap out to get it free? Thanks!

    First off use a good flare wrench. I start at the fuel pump....typically at the carb they like to twist as you try and undo it...gives you a bit of play if the fuel pump end is loose.

    1" open end on the carb nut, and use the flare on the fuel line. Tap the flare wrench with a hammer to hopefully break the nut free from the line.
