    Default Fuel Line Help

    Was trying to install these fuel lines today and hit a snag. Hoping someone that's run this style of fuel line or have a similiar setup can offer some help on an easy fix. The front set up seems to be a little more forgiving than the rear lines where they're hitting the carb linkage. Didn't have a chance to get a pick of the side I had the issue with but figured this pic will give a good idea. Prob an easy fix with a tubing bender. Just wanted to pick brains before I start trying to modify these. I do have the Enderle dual carb linkage kit that these are bumping into. As of now I went from the outside. Anyone run em from the inside? Had to bend em around linkage or?

    Wish I could help you but I'm not running dual carbs, but I do have a hand tube bender if you decide that's the fix you need to do to make it work!

    Looks like the back carb lines are hitting the linkage? Who made them? My first call would be to them. Maybe you have a set that wasn't bent properly.

    Are those lines for Dominator Carbs. That's what it looks like to me.

    They're only hitting em because I have em resting on there because the other side isn't attached yet. Think I'll try and run em on the inside of the linkage later.

    Lines I orderd are for the 4150 carbs. Made sure they werent dominator lines. They fit, they just hit the linkage to a point I have to force them into the other fittings. It's not a simple hook and tighten and go though. Prob needs some bending. Looking for a simple fix without having to re-invent the wheel and figured theres gotta be someone out there that has run into the same prob as I have running a pro style set up like this

    I'm thinking make the fuel enter in the back of the bowls so lines are opposite of linkage. Just trying to help. Best luck

    The stainless lines look a little long to me but could just be the picture. I have the exact same set up and didn't have any clearance issues.

    The middle rod looks a little off to. Maybe a little adjustment will take care of it?

    Have you tried relocating the inlet side of the carburetor. They can be attached to either side and the
    carburetor doesn't care which side the fuel goes in.

    If that doesn't work, switch the fuel lines to the other side if you need too.
    Good luck.

    Got it from Rob Ward, fastforward on here. They are carbon fiber and are a very nice piece and pretty reasonably priced. You can search surfer style scoops and find a few places that make em too.
