When I bought my Jeep it came with a brand new Edelbrock carb. It also came with a overpowered electric fuel pump, and a rubber hose for the fuel line all the way from the tank to the engine. I didn't like the pump or hose so I replaced both with a mechanical pump and steel line. I saw the fuel line set up below at Edelbrock's web site and decided that it would be great to eliminate the hose running along the front and top of my engine.
I bought it a month ago and finally had time to install it this weekend. However, I hit a snag. It turns out that the end of the line with the elbow is a 3/8" pipe thread, and that is supposed to connect to the fuel pump. The stock mechanical fuel pump (At least the one I have), takes a 5/16" flared fuel line with the threaded nut. Just by coincidence, Edelbrock sells a mechanical fuel pump that has 3/8" pipe inlet and outlet. However, $135.00 seems a bit steep for a fuel pump. I have looked at several industrial supply stores for an adapter, but have not been able to find one. Anyone here have any ideas for this? Besides dropping $135.00 for a fuel pump. Any help would be appreciated.
Call Summit. I'd bet they sell an adapter fitting.
