No, because when you place it in the clip and maintain it level the rise is to short. And if you try end remove bends and re-bend it will look re-bent, steel is not good bendable material. I will keep looking.

Thanks

All of the fuel and brake lines are steel, and bend quite nicely if you use a tubing cutter and bender; go to your local auto parts store, get some 3/16" brake tubing, and bend it to suit your application.

EVERYONE has the repop. Just get it from whoever is closest to you.

I have purchased the one from Heartbeat and it does not fit with the Z28 intake. I will make one. Measure the two and post it for info.

I have compared the repro to our original and it was the same and fits great. What bracket are you using to hold the steel vac. line?
