    I just got my first VW! Probably rushed into buying, but I wanted one, so… ’72 Transporter Deluxe. My Bentley and Complete Idiot books won’t be here until end of month. Anyhow, been reading up a bit and looks like fuel line replacement should be the first project. What type of fuel line do y’all recommend and what type of clamps? It’s 1700cc with two Weber carbs.

    Congrats!!!  Pics?

    Idiot bible and a B manuel.  Your a wise man.

    Good German 7mm fuel line. Wolfsburg West has good stuff. Buy a few extra feet and replace annually.

    No clamps needed with the good  stuff.

     

    We will build it if it comes.

    Or you can buy gates American rubber lines with fi clamps and replace them every 5-10 years.

    Is it a bad idea to run hard lines for the whole system like the line in 36ers have from the fuel pump to the carb???

    I found an ethanol free pump near my house and that’s been a game changer! Feels good filling up with that stuff. Especially now that I’m daily driving the DC.

    I did that three or four years ago,  fourth of July weekend, and I vapor locked because fuel was boiling in the hard line  that passed through the backing plate into the engine bay . It also killed the fuel pump, ripped the  diaphragm.

    It was 105 that day  I have had no problems since after going back to og style line  even in hundred degree plus heat

    We will build it if it comes.
