Where are you guys getting this?
Can it be from a local farm hardware store?
I know someone will slap me but I use a radiator hose. In my case it is a 90 degree bend and it is tough so it doesn't collapse. I replace it every year or so, hasn't given me an issue. Wouldn't want to use it in a long run though.
Well, slap me too. I always wanted to try that silicone stuff but never got around to it.
I go to the parts store, look over the selection and then cut it to fit. I also pick up an internal spring for the curves if it doesn't have one. As mentioned the alky will get to the hose sooner or later. The tip off is that it gets hard. I usually put a new one on each yr since it's relatively cheap. I don't make many laps these days so dry rot happens sooner.
Contact Race Car Solutions or McKinney. Look and act like right it is only a phone call away., and do it right the first time. Nothing personal guy's Don
cut to fit 1.25 radiator hose 1.25 alum tube has a 90* bend in it and i use two straight pieces of hose to connect it to the tank and the pump
slap me also..dave
I got aluminum 1.25 tubing from McMaster Carr. Inexpensive also. I think it was about 40 bucks. They also sell 45* and 90* pieces so you can fab up whatever you need.
Tank to Pump fuel line
As noted above, buy the tubing and take to the local muffler shop and have them bend the radius you want -- Big radius -- no more problems!
Get it at local Napa stores
I have always run a similar set up to what has been discussed on here but have recently bought a new dragster which has a -12 braided fuel line from tank to pump. The car previously had a blown sbc but I am running a blown bbc. Is a -12 line big enough to run my combo? I am thinking not, but it wouldn't be the first thing I'm wrong about!

Sounds like my old car, it went to Australia.
Pm sent. Thanks.
Yes that is it,good luck with it.
Lots of slapping going on here....Guess I need to get in on it too!!! Radiator hose for me as well!!!!
For you guys running radiator hoses, do you also run the spring in them to prevent them from collapsing? What size pump (GPM wise) do we have to worry about collapsing the inlet?
slap me twice i have two cars running the radiator hose, no problems here and yes i have an internal spring in fact one of my cars came from AMS and was a team car and a record setter it came with rad hose, so slap dave woods while your at it,
19 gpm watermans here,
When you forget how old the radiator hose is and you start popping burst panels at half track, but are lucky enough to not hurt other parts, pitch the hose and go get tubing. Fewer problems and cheaper in the long run. You spend big bucks on a pump and ignition, but buy a radiator hose for a fuel line, come on!!!!!!
What type of tubing? Most of the people that have responded as using radiator hoses, said they replace them yearly as a from of maintenance.
