    In Tank Fuel Lines

    Does anyone know what type of material the fuel lines in the tank are made of ? My lines look like they are getting some small cracks like dry rot.

    Do you know where to get new lines from? I replaced all the fuel lines these are the only ones left to do to be completely done and piece of mind.

    Stock ones on mine were rubber. I replaced them with the good tygon lines.

    Ok I went to McMaster Carr and found this tygon line. It is F-4040 A tubing. It states its for Biodiesel, coolants, and gasoline so I am sure this is what was suggested. One last question. You can select on their website the outside & inside diameters and wall thickness. In order to get it right without having to pull the gas tank open (which is hard to do when I am in Akron Ohio working and live in Pittsburgh PA), does anyone know off the top of their head which outside & inside diameter and wall thickness to order? Outside ranges from 1/8th to 1 inch, inside ranges from 1/16th to 3/4 inch and wall thickness ranges from 1/32 to 1/8th.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Ordered and the smallest was 10 ft length I think. Either way I will have some left over so pm me if anyone needs a couple. I have my 650 and Pro to do, but should have enough left over to send to anyone who may need to change thier's out.

    It's not a bad idea to add a clunk and longer line to the bottom of the pick up so you have some more filtration and the clunk will always seek out the fuel.
