Fuel Lines Started
Figure 111

Figure 111. We have to adapt the CJ7 fuel sending unit to AN lines. The feed to the engine starts out at 5/16 on the sending unit, and the return is 1/4. We used an adapter fitting, 6AN Male Flare x 5/16 Hose Barb Fitting Black Anodized, on the side out to the engine. We also used a 6AN Male Flare x 1/4 Hose Barb Fitting, also black anodized. The 1/4 adapter came from Racetronix. We used a short section of fuel injection rubber hose on each side, with fuel injection clamps. These will bring the fuel lines out close to the frame rails.

First Section of Fuel Line to filter/regulator
Figure 112

Figure 112. The lines are now run from the gas tank stub hoses to the Wix regulator. Russell 632093 ProClassic Black Hose was used and Russell Cushion clamps attach it to the frame. On the fittings from the WIX 33737 Fuel Filter/Regulator, the bottom one, which is the pressure line, needed a Vibrant Performance 1 Inch Female to Male 6AN Extender Fitting to clear the upper return fitting. Two Russell 613095 Swivel Hose End 45 6AN attach the hoses on each end. The adapters for the filter/regulator are Russell 640853 6AN Male to 3/8" SAE QD Female Push-On EFI Fitting and Russell 640863 6AN Male to 5/16" SAE QD Female Push-On EFI Fitting, on the other side of the filter is a Russell 640940 6AN Male to 3/8" SAE QD Male Push-On EFI Fitting.

Fuel Line after Filter/Regulator
Figure 113

Figure 113. The fuel line after the filter/regulator was done in the same Russell Pro-Classic hose, and ran on top of the frame rail. Again, Russell 650980 Cushion Clamps were used.

Forward fuel line mounted
Figure 114

Figure 114. The fuel line is now mounted to the frame. Where the line might be subject to rubbing or other forms of abrastion, generic 1/2 inch split loom was placed over the line to protect it.
