67-9 Fuel lines

This is a discussion that started in another thread and I split it off into its own topic.
I originally wrote:
All V8's were 3/8 in 67-68. I thought this was on the site, but I don't see it. If I can get comparable pics of the SB vs BB line routing from original cars, I'll add it.

Kurt, to my knowledge that is only true for 68.  67 did have small blocks with 5/16".  Ill get you pictures before the weekend unless someone else can get them sooner.

When I needed to replace the hard line to the carb on my '67 327/275 it was a 5/16" at the fuel pump.  Wasn't fuel pump AC 40503 correct for that engine (January pad stamp date) with a 5/16" line? I have no idea about the tank to pump line as I haven't replaced it yet.

The rear hose from the tank to the main line would be the same 5/16".  In 67 the only engines that got 3/8" were L35 & 78 & Z.  I am not 100% sure on the L48.

'69 L78 gas line, unmolested, clip missing (you can see the outline where it mounted to the gas line).

Line is intact, doesn't appear to have been bent or mangled other than missing the last two clips.

May have had headers too. I see a familiar mod to cutting away a part of the upper control arm edge at the rear bushing.
Only motor to get headers that close would be a big block.

 If 68 is the same as 67 here are some pics of my original 67 04B LOS L35 fuel line paths in the engine compartment (excuse the rust on the frame clip from the exhaust manifold and the primer dust from another car restoration).
It still has the AC fuel pump and also the square edge clamps. I believe the fuel line to be original as it was on the car when I bought it in 1980.

My 68 L35 clip just like mike s fuel line as far as back fuel line clip. Our 68 small block car has bolt with clamp. Also noticed bb car curves down to motor mount with clip like Steve's bb car great pictures guy's!  Would take picture on L35 but ac box in way to get good picture.

See what happens when I talk about non-69's. :)

All: thanks for the pics. I thought the termination of the L48 fuel line was different than the big block.

So there's several clips that vary, as Darrell's pics show

I really like the angle of z28z11's pic and also Mike's middle pic. They both show the cradle clip and the end of the hard line. Mike's pic should be able to be duplicated on complete cars. z28z11's pic is really only for those without engines.
Can we get more shots from other years/ models, including L6 cars?

I no longer have the orig gas line on my car but I know for sure the orig line I removed back in 1988 from my 68 396 car was a single line 3/8"

All 68 V8 cars were 3/8"

Return lines did not start until 69.


Also the small block picture I show above is a 67.  This is the reason for the clip and not clamp & bolt on the rear of the line like the 68.
