I am going to purchase a new 1970 20 gallon tank, fuel sending unit and tank to fuel pump lines for the 65 coupe. It will have a 74' 302 and a four barrel carb. Any reason why I shouldn't go with the 3/8" line over the 5/16"?

In fact you'll need to use 3/8 because that's the size of the outlet on the '70 sender. For clarification: 1970 tanks are 22 gallon, while the '69 is 20 gallons (but also with the 3/8 outlet). You can use a 65/6 sender (with the 5/16 outlet) but it won't read accrately... it will read "full" until you start going below 16 gallons.

Plus, use the '68 fuel line (which is 3/8) it will run on the outside of the frame rails. That's key if you have headers....the fuel line wont be close to them.

Are you saying that you absolutely have to run the 68' lines with headers, or is it just a preventive measure to reduce the possibility of vapor lock?
