Fuel Pipe Route

PostPost by: nebogipfel » Mon Mar 28, 2005 1:07 pm

Hi All

OK I admit it! I forgot to thread the fuel pipe through the chassis while the body was off my S4.

I imagine it's a b*gger to get it through now.

I wonder about running it inside the car?

Anyone got a bright idea or already tried it?

I routed mine with the body on. It's almost a straight line from the tank outlet through the upper right side of the back bone. There are holes provided in the factory bulkheads. I think this is where the brake line used to be before I moved it to the other side. Purchase an 5' piece of brake pipe and connect it to the tank via a compression fitting. At the front end, use rubber fuel hose to go to another short piece of brake pipe that can go into the pump. Good luck!
