as I’m going to replace the breather pipes to the front and rear carbs anyhow I might just as well replace the original (+45-year-old!) fuel hoses as well. The originals have kept up well and don’t show any external signs of failure. If I replace them I won’t use cheap rubber failing after a few years again.
So, what is the common experience? While I don’t need high pressure hoses, I expect hoses to last over decades. I seem to remember someone recommended Würth hoses with low permeation. They are available in 5.5/11.5 mm, 7.3/13.5 mm, 9.3/15.3 mm (internal diameter/external diameter). Which ones do I need from tank to carburettor? Any other recommendations?
For years I’ve been living with broken clips (no longer) fixing the fuel line to the floor pan. It is four double clips fixing both the thicker fuel line and the thinner brake line. Is this part C.37627 (hard to judge as mine are all missing)?
Thank you all!
