What is the correct size hose to use from the fuel tank to the the fuel pump? I'm in the process of replacing all the standard size hoses however not sure about this one. Good tip about cutting the hose as well. Going to use that one!
TIA. Peter

Hi Michael,
: The easiest way I have found to insert a new fuel line through the body is to cut the hose diagonally about 2-3 inches back from one end of the hose. This way you will have a tapered or pointed end to the hose, then just greese up the hose with some type of lube or soap and it should slide through a lot easier. Just remember that you actually have to go through two holes in the body to go from the pump to the tank.
: Hope that helps,
