Fuel line routing with vapor separator

Post by 71Satellite98661 » Sat Aug 17, 2013 3:09 pm

I'm installing new 3/8" fuel line, 5/16" crankcase vapor and 1/4" vapor return lines on my 71 Satellite :help: that were original to 440 and 426 cars. My question is related to clamps and clips; do all (3) get clamped together or just (2) with the 3rd line being clipped with the S clips? I'm having trouble managing these on a freshly painted rotisserie job. This is especially difficult with reproduction torque boxes installed front and rear. Does anyone have any advice and/or photos?

Are there any Diagrams showing fuel lines ? I have two lines 3/8 and 5/16 running to the front of my '71 GTX .I do not see a 1/4 return line (from Filter /Separator at fuel pump) to the 2nd nipple on the fuel tank sender. It is a "U" Code car that should have had the Filter /Sep.@ Fuel pump,Correct ? :beer:

Here's a picture of the fuel line routing that member 72RoadrunnerGTX (Doug) posted on the for B bodies only website.
