I went to finally get my car going for the year, when I turned on the key there was a huge fuel leak in the line that runs thru the driver side rocker panel. Of course once the hose developed a leak the gas continued to drain out of the tanks. I grabbed a clamp to squeeze the fuel line to stop the gas and the hose was so brittle it just cracked there and started leaking where I put the clamp on. There was a brass fitting joining the fuel line just in front of the fuel pumps that I was able to get the old hose off and attach a new section of hose with a bolt clamped in the end (of course while doing this the gas ran down my arm and soaked my shirt). It stopped the leak but was a real mess and we had some drain pans under the car and caught about 6-7 gallons before I got the leak stopped. Bottom line, check your gas lines! While most of mine were relatively new the line running thru the body was shot. I can't imagine what would have happened if I had been out driving the car, it could have been pretty ugly. Now my real question, who has replaced this pressure and return hoses on a carb car. I was wondering if there are any things I should know or do to change the lines. It looks like the line comes up into the engine compartment and then hooks up to a "T" to feed both fuel rails. I'm not sure how to get started with this so any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
