I'm working on my 5.0 and need some custom billet brackets to secure my fuel lines. In this pic, look at the upper radiator hose. I need to secure the 2 braided fuel lines to it (one on each side). Anyone have ideas?

Most any race or fab shop can handle that for you, not really that big a deal, will not be a cheap off the shelf part but if you catch them while there slow before things start getting geared up for spring sometimes they need little jobs like this to keep busy.

We had to make lots of custom brackets like your needing just not that big a deal since your in Reno maybe run down to Summit and ask them for Recomenation of fab shop. Don't ask the reg counter guys.

Are you sure you want to preheat your fuel by attaching to the hot radiator hose??? :jawdrop:

Those are the return lines after the injectors. Fuel goes from these into the fuel pressure regulator, then returns to the fuel tank.

I' m using these http://www.made4uproducts.com/ I purchased some aluminum from the hardware store to make some brackets so I could attach them at angles. The aluminum I used was thick enough I could drill and tap it to the 10x32 screw sized used on these clamps. I could then shape the aluminum exactly as I wanted. The brackets I made for my "hard heater hose" project were done this way. There are photos on my Cardomaine page.
