  • Fuel line routing?

    My question is about the routing of the metal fuel line that runs from the fuel pump, around the front of the motor to the carbs. In my '6 at least, the line runs through a bracket tucked in under the thermostat housing, and help in place by one of the water pump bolts. This puts the bracket perilously close to the fan belt - in fact, I noticed a few days ago that the bracket was actually rubbing against the belt - albeit gently, but leaving a clear "rub strip" on the belt and generating some amount of black dust. Is this the correct routing for the fuel line? It seems to me that essentially turning the bracket around would move the fuel line up and away from the belt. As the pic shows, the fuel line is pretty ratty, so I have a replacement en route. I want to nail down the proper routing before I bend the new line.

    Hello Dave,
    I have seen so many versions, but I tend to believe this is the original routing, at least the attachment.
    I kept my fuel lines away from the engine by routing it at the backside of the battery, in order to avoid engineheat transferring into the fuellines.

      That's sort of how it goes, Dave, but your clamp seems to be deformed and missing the rubber bushing.

          Well spotted Jim - my original bracket is even rattier than than fuel line. What you see is my Mk I attempt at fabricating a replacement. A work in progress, clearly
