Need a picture of fuel line routing 77 CJ5 V8
 
Anyone have a picture of the fuel and return line routing for a 77 CJ5 with the V8? Mine was hacked up by the PO. I have the body off and tubes from Inline tube. Do the tubes go on top of the frame rail?
Thanks

I searched lots of Forums and didn't find any good picture. Finally, after lots of Google searches, I came across this site. About half way through the pictures is a series of very good photos of the original fuel line routing for a CJ5 V8. I thought I'd post the link so others can find it.

Cool you found that! I actually manage that website and page and found this thread through a pingback. I wrote that article :2thumbsup: Oddly enough, I also own a Jeep Wrangler. So glad you found it useful.

Here is an option, I had my tub off and was looking for a better way. I haven't had it on the street yet, so time will tell.

I used poly tubing to line my frame and then pulled parker super flex braided line inside that. I used grommets to pass through the frame crossover member. With the frames lined with poly, I can slip the fuel line back out for replacement or inspection. The only problem may come from the line collapsing under suction from the mechanical pump. It shouldn't. Now i never have to worry about my exhaust and fuel.

New rear brake line, notched the ebrake mount a little to stay tight to the frame.

fuel supply entering the frame rail. It exits the frame rail inches from the mechanical pump.

Hi,
I hope you keep the photos up on your website. I am restoring a CJ5 and the pictures you have of an original Jeep are invaluable. Thanks for sharing them. :thumbsup:

That's a good way to protect the tubes especially for off roading. The production installation has the coming around the outside of the frame that look easy to damage.

We actually share the photos to keep customers in the loop since they can't come by the shop and check out their cars, but we are always happy to find others who find them useful :):tea:
