ROW V8 fuel tank inlet and return size

Having custom fuel lines made up for this LS swap. Im not able to drop my tank right now so wondering if anyone knows off hand what size the outlet and return hose sizes are for a carbed Row V8 tank? Also is the outlet barbed? I know the return wasn't.
Thank you!

Every truck I've seen is 3/8" nylon tubing. Never hose.

Yes, 3/8, but tubing, which is the outside diameter.

John,
I don't have a ROW truck, but 99% sure mine are both 5/16 and the pump tube is barbed. Should be back home shortly and confirm, again though not ROW.

I'm going to say, looking at the part catalog, there is some variety through the years. I would look at what you have in person....

I would except my hands look like this….so while i wait for my burns to heal my neighbor who builds hot rods and races funny cars has generously offered to make up custom fuel lines for me. Personally i think he is worried if i blow my house up his might catch fire also

OUCH! When you do blow your house up, at least I have Casco Bay to stop the Greater Portland Fire of 2015 from spreading to SoPo.

I ran aluminum lines from Summit on my first RRC. Much easier to fit than SS if you go with metal lines.
