I used the TFE hose and high presssure fittings for the fuel system in
my TR4A. I bought all the pieces from Speedway Motors online. The links
are listed below. The neat thing about this stuff is that you can easily
make up sections in lengths you need as you go. I don't know how many
pieces I made from my dual outlet, 2 pump system to the regulator under
the hood, but it looks great. I have a bulkhead fitting for the main
line where it goes through the firewall and another for the coolant line
from my fuel pressure gauge isolator. The fittings are reusable and the
hose doesn't have a 5 second rule like rubber encapsulated stuff. I used
electrical tape and a cut-off wheel, blow out the dust and used silicone
grease to ease assembly. The only worry is crimping if you bend it too
tightly. Have a look.,81_High-Pressure-Hose-Ends.html,81_Stainless-Wire-BTFEandB-Braided-H

My Dad's old TR3 arrived via Passport Transport on Monday night.  Each
night after work, I'm out there puttering around trying to tidy up the
engine compartment a bit. It's in great condition but I've always wanted
to clean up the location of a few lines, wires, etc..

One of the things I'd like to do is to replace the 17year old Aeroquip
fuel lines with new stuff.

The braided SS fuel hoses on the car were cut to length with a hack-saw.
Then, the prickly ends were wrapped in a few loops of black tape.  Over
that goes a hose clamp.  When I shop around online for Aeroquip tubing
and fittings, all the ends available seem to be THREADED fittings.  Is
there a more elegant solution to clamp the ends onto the SU carb
fuel-input pipes than the hack saw, tape, hose clamp method?

Anyone use rubber fuel tubing instead of the braided line?
