This is the current hose that all the repo houses sell. Does yours look like this Bill?
Thanks.

Doc, yes you are correct as that is what I see advertised often but it is not correct and Legends judging for example will deduct as not being correct. I would suggest you might be better off in just putting on a piece of black gas hose with no writing.

I wonder if the markings varied based on the supplying vendor.
In this thread, my reply #9 shows the hose (04B LOS L35) that has been on the car since I bought it in 1980.

The car has the original fuel pump so I believe this hose (SAE 100R6) to be original too.

Here's mine, from my 03D Z11. Kinda faint, dated 11/28/8. Not ribbed, but "textured" with the reinforcing plys noticeable -

James - yours is pristine compared to mine. Amazing construction (from the U.S. of A !) to last this long.

Steve

Thanks Steve, do your letters and numbers measure roughly 3/16"?
This hose is from line to pump?
Anyone else have their original hoses?
Thanks, Doc.

Doc,

Yes, this is the frame line to pump hose, The "GM" seems a little larger than the balance of the markings, measures almost .250", the rest are right at 3/16" best I can scale them. The square is about the same as the GM logo -

I've noticed the reproductions have several additional markings that the original don't have. I replaced mine with Goodyear fuel lines (but I don't see concours judging in my Z11's future.

Steve

This is what Jeff has.

Mine is generally what the Midyear Corvette guys wanted.  I just produced what an NCRS guy sent me a picture of.
I can make anything, so when we all figure out what the Camaro used - -just show me.  I would only take me a week to duplicate.

I hope someone can send you a sample of the gas line. I had to replace my original due to cracking.

 If you have a picture and know what the line OD is then based on that reference you can get an accurate estimate of the font sizes and go to places like rubberstamp.com to get a stamp made up. That is what I did for my PTB stamps (repro's are too large) as well as upper and lower radiator hoses (repro's have wrong numeric fonts).

So far we have two examples which go from Dec to April using the same format. If anyone has any example(s) please post it/them. Jeff, would you sell the stamp or a hose with the stamping on it? also need more examples to see how the date was spread out. Never heard back from Bill in Ohio.
Thanks.

My 9B of 68 L34 survivor had identical 5/16 hose that James pictured with GM and box. I've attached a 3/8 hose from a 4C Z28 survivor. I don't see a logo and have only wiped with WD 40.

I have had alot going on and never remembered to check my hose but good chance if others have gotten the non stock looking hose at heartbeat that is what mine is.  I am having hip surgery in the morning and the hose wont get looked at till spring now. Sorry I didnt get that done but guessing its not correct

As Steve's I've looked at low mileage survivors and noticed zero in the way of any stenciled writing on the hose and the reason I suggested putting a hose on with nothing on it vs. the repro hoses offered for sale as correct.
