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.
SIMPLE INSTL. AND SAVES ON FINDING/FITTING LOTS OF ADAPTERS!
FOLLOWING is the "Fuel" list that one of the DIY-EFI guys assembled.

can anyone identify source?)

FROM GMECM list:
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.
