    Rubber fuel pipe

    Just changed the hose from the tank to the hardline as it was leaking,lasted two years though.

    Looking round the web there are conflicting opinions on what is best,some say R9 but be careful of the bay as there's Chinese knock off stuff on there,some say R14.One automotive 'name' said they didn't know the difference between 9&14 and sugested asking Gates (e mail sent) I'm guessing 9 is for low pressure as with a carb n 14 is for high such as injection.

    I'm running a SBC 350 with a Holley on top.........what hose does everyone else go with ?

    Cheers
    Chris

    Ps,......need a shared workshop on Mersea Island for car storage n somewhere to go when its cold,rainy n dark.
