Hey, everyone...

I realize off the bat that this is going to sound REEEAAALLLY stupid, but here goes. Laugh at me, if you must.

Installing the tank-to-pump fuel line in my '67 this weekend. I have the line, the clips, the screws, the tools and finally the cajones to go ahead and do this. But I'm wondering what it is that connects the line itself to the sending unit and to the pump? Rubber? Hose clamps? Spit and chewing gum? Twist-ties? Faith? I did a search both here and in the old forum, but that turned up dry. And I haven't seen it in any of my books, seems like it's one of those "too minor to discuss" details that I should know without thinking too hard.

Maybe it's due to the fact that the uninstalled line came with the car, but with no extra hardware...or just my very limited knowledge on this part of the car.

Any help is greatly appreciated, TIA!
John

Any specific size/type of tube I should go for/that is recommended?

Thanks for responding so quickly, you're helping me out of a jam. JP

I'm not sure of the size 1/4" I think (won't swear to it). If you go to just about any parts store, just say I need 1ft of 1/4" fueil line, they'll fix you up.

mines got about 3 inches of tubing between sender and fuel line - clamps on both ends.
