    Plumbing solid fuel lines

    Oh don't worry I'll do the bottom hose to match

      I just don't want 6 feet of rubber fuel hose sitting in the engine compartment.
      With steel lines running from mechanical fuel pump location,the weak link is at that location.
      A leak falls harmlessly to the road,not on a hot engine.

        Just remember the flexing of the engine to the body/frame

          The hard lines from the frame are connected to the mechanical fuel pump location by rubber fuel hose.
          Hard lines will run to the fender well,then to the carb where another piece of hose will attach to the carb.
          Pretty much the same setup as a stock fuel pump,except the lines will be longer with a secondary connection on the fender.

            Why are you running a fuel pressure regulator with a mechanical fuel pump? What kind of pump is it?

                skip white Holley Clone,Electric 110 gph race pump,located at the tank.
                Regulator at the inner fender for 6 psi to a Holley 3310.

                  So you're doing 2 pumps? Good luck with that.

                        One pump pulling through another pump is defeating the purpose. Pushing fuel to a regulator then pumping it in will eventually cause issues. I've tried running dual pumps. Big waste of time and money. Caused a shitload of problems too

                          I've never ran two before especially just to choke it down with a regulator.

                                Is that mechanical pump running off the driveshaft? LOL
