View Full Version : Fuel line elbow for front carburetor.



09-14-2008, 03:09 PM
Does anyone know if any of the big 3 sell just the molded fuel line elbow for the front carburetor? I replaced all my fuel lines earlier this Summer and I noticed today that the one small piece from the metal "T" to the front carburetor wants to kink and slow the fuel flow. I couldn't find it listed on any of their web pages but as I recall when I changed it, it seemed to have a natural curve to it.

They, (Moss) sells the molded rubber elbow for the 6. A bit pricey though. I found mine locally in Vancouver. Bought a second for kicks.

That could depend on whose car we're talking about.

I got that fuel line elbow for my TR6 from TRF. About $4 and worth it since, as you point out, straight fuel line will kink. See the Blue book: https://www.zeni.net/trf/TR6bluebook/42.php

If you want, I have an extra brass tee compression fitting for 1/8" fuel line you can have. PM me if interested.

Thanks for the link Scott and thanks for the offer Shannon. I'm going to order a couple from TRF now.
