Flex hoses for TBI's

Saw where someone wanted to add flex hoses to a TBI.
Here is some info that might help.

Late 80's P/U's came stock with SS braided lines.

I bought a couple of sets from the local Chevy Dlr.
at less than $70 a set for P/N 1556-7762, Hose Assy.
May seem to be HI$ until you see what you get.

This P/N includes two SS flex hoses clamped together 
with a small clip /mount (easily removed)

Smaller hose is about 48 in long, Female 5/16 Saginaw (14mm x 1.5)
on one end and short piece of tubing on other end, 
bent just over 90 degrees to connect at TBI. The tube end is 
5/16 Saginaw Male and goes right into fitting on TBI for return.

Larger hose is about 60 in long, Male 3/8 Saginaw (16mm x 1.5)
on both ends.  Also connects right to the fitting on the TBI and the other
connects right into a Chevy P/U fuel filter making the supply.


FOLLOWING is the "Fuel" list that one of the DIY-EFI guys assembled.
(sorry about not being able to give credit more accurately-
can anyone identify source?) 

Fuel injection feed and return nut kit GM 1711798
thread sizes are 14mm X 1.5 and 16mm X 1.5

Connector, fuel feed, double female lines   GM 15544805
connects two male 3/8" Saginaw ends

Connector, fuel return, double female lines  GM 15550219
connects two male 5/16" Saginaw ends

Short sections of line, approx2", with metric/quick connect
Pressure: GM#15694407   $10.55 list
                       15609225    short, straight  $2.55
                       15609224    short, u shaped  $3.25
                       15694408     $10.55
These fittings can easily be used with rubber line by using the quick
connect side as a barb.  Be sure to use quality clamps and hose rated for
appropriate pressures.

GM Stainless steel braided hose, feed and return
15567762  approx. 30"long   $72 list
This line is used on '88 and '89 pickups.  
Looks nice and it's flexible, but spendy.

Finally found a local shop which stocks the whole Aeroquip line, not just
the metal-braid race stuff.   Not sure if anyone needs this info , but
here's pn's for what I used for going from frame-rail steel fuel line to
the fuel rail.  This is push-on rubber hose, no crimping rings or
compression fittings needed.  Rated for 300 psi.  Fittings are brass.  Also
available in -8 and -10.  

Hose, -6, Aeroquip PN 2556-6    
- -6 Hose to Male 3/8" inverted flare fitting PN 4740-6
- -6 Hose to Female 3/8" inverted flare fitting PN 4743-6

This is great stuff, and cheap too - hose $2.50/ft, fittings $3.25 each.
