  • Fuel Line To Pump

    I'm looking for the fuel line that runs up the front of the 430 engine and feeds the fuel pump. I've checked with some vendors and Carl at partsetal but have not found one. Does anyone have photos of this lines routing or an old one I could buy and use as a pattern? Thanks

    It's basically just a straight run with a slight bend to it. If Carl doesn't have one your chances of finding one are slim.

      Thanks John.
      I forgot to mention that my car has a/c so I don't know if that makes a difference. I appreciate the illustration.

        We just had a member who added factory a/c to his non-a/c 430 car and he didn't mention anything about having to redo the fuel line. Carl has also done it so he probably knows for sure.

          For your info the parts manual lists the length of the line as 20.30".

            My car didn't have the original fuel pump when I purchased it. It has an electric pump back by the tank. There is a rubber hose from the line on the frame to the carburetor. I want to put an original pump back on but keep the electric pump. I don't like all that rubber hose. I will probably have to make a metal line as I'm not having much luck finding one.

              I have the pump, heat shield, sediment bowl and metal lines sitting on my floor. If you want it let me know, I switched to efi and an intank pump.

                Is that setup for the 430 with a/c. I didn't realize there was a sediment bowl. But, I am interested if it is correct. Thanks

                  430 without ac. All I know is this is what was on mine.

                    That's not the correct fuel pump. The outlets are in the wrong place. I don't think the lines are correct either. Most likely they were changed to match up to the pump. The pump used an inline filter so the glass filter is incorrect.

                      I know the pump has a screw in filter on the oulet side. I am not aware of a sediment bowl. But, that is not to say there wasn't one. My pump has the inlet and outlet at 90 degrees of one another. I am afraid I will have bend my own lines. My problem is I am terrible at making double flares. Thanks
