I am trying to replace my fuel lines on my car. But I have no idea how the lines should be routed. Does anyone have a good picture of how the lines should go? I have one, but it does not show the frame, so that really does not help. thanks in advace!

You might consider buying a prebent line for the year of your car. It comes bent in a wide arc with tape marking where to gently bend it back`to correct shape. The Osborn Chassis manual for your year should show the line routing. Also, a hardwaree kit is available to attach the line to your car. The same applies to brake lines. The 65/66 and maybe the early 67 had 5/16 line while the 68 has 3/8.

i'd buy the prebent but its 62 bucks! , so i think for 12 bucks i'll bend it myself. I have the hardware holding it in place already, but for 11 bucks I think i'll buy all new hardware. thanks for the info. oh yeah, would i get anything out of running the larger tube?
