Fueling Last Update: May 15, 2009 11:17 PM

Fueling is nearly exactly the same as for my car but below are some pics anyways.

ONE NOTE: the connections on the top of the fuel tank are standard 5/16 quick connects (EFI fitting) so Summit part # RUS-640850 will clip on.

My first surprise opening the fuel tank access panel was this nicely formed mouse (?) nest. While I was ready for Mighty Mouse to come shooting out, there was no one home.

Since the new Walbro 255 fuel pump does not have the same wiring connectors as the stock NB one, I had to crimp on some new connectors to attach the new pump. Besides that, its a bolt in 10 min job.

NOTE: When making SS braided lines, its easy to fray the ends and stab yourself with braids while working feverously to get the stupid hose into the little AN fitting. I found this WONDERFUL tool that makes it a 10 second deal. I highly recommend it! Its $30 from Koul Tools.

For the vette fuel filter, it needs a 3/8 hard line so to adapt that hard line to SS braided, you need a AN flareless hard line to AN adapter seen below.

NOTE: In retrospect, I would not put the fitting this close to the fuel filter since it makes it hard to get a quick connect release tool in.
