I'm considering using a simple and inexpensive Holley 0-1850C for the mild 355 I'm assembling for my 82 pickup. I'd like to use a 5/16" steel fuel line from fuel pump to carb. Is there a swivel inverted flare fitting available to replace the hose nipple that comes with the carb? I can't find one anywhere.

I did some searching and came up empty. you can get AN to hard line fittings. You could go with AN out of the carb then to hard line. But then again the expensive part is the fittings.

AN and braided line pump to carb? Looks cool.

I'll keep searching. I would think somebody makes what you are looking for.

Yeah, I found a -6 AN fitting that will work. Already have some hose and hose ends, and even a fuel pump flare fitting, so may go that route.

On another note, do you have a link to pictures of your truck? From what I can see in your avatar, I like the stance. What did you do to front and rear suspension?

I've been a little lazy on the picture taking on this one. I'll work on getting some.

It has 2" drop springs with 2.5" drop spindles in the front.

The rear I did a low buck flip.I bought spring perches from jegs and welded them on. Then I made rear shock mount extenders. This is the second one of done that way.
The last one was an 84 step side. I got a lot of compliments on that one to the point that somebody else decided he needed to own it. So I sold it to him.

I was looking at my truck yesterday in the parking lot at work and noticed it sits lower than in the picture I posted.

The Pictures of both trucks were taken right after I set them back on the ground after doing the drop.

Backed straight out of the shop 50' and stopped.

Now that I have driven it around it has settled more

I was thinking around 2" front and 2" rear on my truck. Up front I will probably use spindles to preserve ride. However, I need to get familiar with ways to drop the rear. Looks like the extended shackle method will do it for me, but haven't seen any instructions, pictures, etc. to see what's involved.

Mono leaf springs w reverse eyes will drop better than longer shackles without changing the spring rate
