in the ongoing and seemingly everlasting renovation of our Bounder its time to replace the fuel lines for both engine and generator.. hard and flexi..
Just a quick question regarding the flexible stuff..
I know you have to have some flexible links to allow for chassis flex and inclusion of inline fuel filters (which ours has along a chassis rail) but we also have a couple of seemingly pointless flexible parts of about 1-2 inches no where near any filter or moveable parts.. just sitting along the main run along the chassis rail about mid way along..
Would it be ok to remove these two extremely short flexi parts and just make one nice long run of new hard line? Obviously keeping the flexible pipe from the hard line to the carb connection and flexi up to the main fuel pump and filters??
Also where the line goes up from the chassis upto the engine & carb it remains flexible from the bottom running fairly close to the back of the engine (ford 460) then connects to the hard line feed of the holley..
Would it be ok/acceptable to lengthen the hard line closer/up to the carb feed and wrap it in heat shield stuff? seems to me that the flexible close to the engine maybe a potential source of fuel vaporization ..
Thanks in advance for any advice and info..
