Stainless fuel lines
Update on my experience with Classic Tube.
I purchased a set of fuel lines in August, (that was an issue in it's self) and finally got them on the project this week. After priming the engine for oil pressure and priming the fuel system, we started the engine.
Maybe 2 minutes run time and happened to look at the back of the car to see fuel running out in great volume. The rubber portion of the return line had seperated from the fitting at the pump, filling the well where the pump sits and then started running out of the fuel tank cradle.
Of course on the return side, the engine continues to run so we weren't immediately aware that there was an issue.
The hose looks like it is severed right where the inner portion is screwed into the outer portion. The outer fitting is a smaller OD than the same fitting on the pressure hose, but both rubber hoses are stamped 5/16".
Oh, and there was a big piece of swarf in the fuel side of the fitting.
I called them first thing this morning, sent pictures, and hadn't heard back by late afternoon.
I'll post an update, hopefully very soon.
