For those that are interested, I finally got my re-worked fuel lines bead blasted and back from the plating.

I also ordered some metric hose fittings, adapters and -6 hose fittings as well as 20 feet of Aero-Quip Starlite hose.


Just an FYI for anyone deciding to do something similar. The gold and black fittings in the pics are not correct for the Starlite hose. These fittings are "cutter" type and are not compatible. These were sent to me by mistake and will be replaced by the correct fittings.

I've also ordered some extra fittings to run new fuel lines from the tunnel to the rear fuel pump up to the manifold and back.


Here are some pics....

The oil lines coming from the thermostat back got the same treatment.

What material are you using to braze (filler, flux) these and what type of torch/heat were you using?

I use harris saftey-silv 56. It is a silver brazing rod.

I also use it with the harris stay-silv white flux.

Don't confuse this with silver soldering as this needs to get up to about 1200 degrees for it to flow.

oxy and acetyline is a must.

Thank you.
I have them done at an industrial plating company. You will never get a durable high quality finish with a home plating kit. At least I don't think you will.

I do however prep everyting myself.
