Looking at cleaning up the pump to carb line and ditching the rubber, making it all steel line. Has any one successfully connected a 5/16 hard line to the carb inlet? As Edelbrock doesn't sell an inverted flare fitting for a 5/16ths line, where did you source yours to make the job happen?

Anyone sell a 5/16 inverted flare (female) 5/8 20 male fitting?

How about this,

Edelbrock hardline to -6 AN and -6 filter male/male,

-6 AN Female to female Coupler

-6 AN male to 5/16 hardline compression tube adapter ,

The tube compression adapters work well and seal up perfectly.

Or just start with 5/8- 20 to -6 inlet and go to a -6 to 5/16 inverted flare adapter.

Thanks for your tips. i was debating going with a 3/8's hardline to the inlet of the carb using fitting 8090.However, the tubing has to go in straight and out then down, where the radiused hardline tucks neatly along the side of the carb and along the top of the intake.I'm confused on the connection piece to the end of the fuel filter? I'd like to plumb 5/16 line from the pump to the male end of that fuel filter. There's a crap load of fittings out there. Which one would connect the 5/16 line...the end would be flared obviously to attach to the Edelbrock fuel filter coming off that edelbrock hard line? If it's a compression fitting, are they safe on a fuel line.i'd rather have a non compression fitting if there's such an animal for this application....

The filter in that Edelbrock hardline kit is -6 AN, both ends.
I used the same setup years ago on my HO350, but did AN all the way down to the fuel pump. Everything but the one end of the pump elbow (3/8 Npt) was AN.

What was nice about the braided line, was it tucked nicely behind the waterpump.

Looks impressive! Would you have an Edelbrock part # for the hose?

I made them all up myself. I really enjoyed doing them. Always tried to use a reusable swivel type AN fitting. Had good luck with the Summit branded fittings and line.

No issues with the top heater hose getting in the way? When i look at my performer intake and where the heater hose is in proportion where the hard line and filter come through, it looks like the heater hose is dead center. There must be enough slack in the line, to go around the hose?

I tweaked the hardline a wee bit for the fitting to clear.
