Thanks for that information. Looks much better than the universal accordion type. Another hose which can be trimmed to fit is NAPA #9908.

Man you really made that engine compartment look beautiful, including that
nice yellow throttle return spring! Small details make a big difference.

Thanks, I was in the process of looking for just that. Also do not like the universal ribbed ones. That engine compartment is looking good! Dave

Looks like you used NiCopp (nickel copper alloy tubing) to make your fuel line.
I have used it to make brake and fuel lines and it works well. Sometimes I fill the
tube with sand or glass beads to make sharp bends. Also smart that you didn't use any rubber hose as fuel line to the carb. I have heard of more than one engine fire caused by a hose or clamp letting go.
