Since WE like the same hobby...old iron, I am going to respond only because I feel it necessary to give you an opinion where your car/safety my be at risk. IF you are talking the 'red' plastic fuel line that turns different color after a short while....and gets brittle like a tatochip...don't subject yourself to such hazard, just my experience/advice. While driving I noticed a stream of gas pissing clear above my windshield ('30 roadster). I felt lucky just this one time. I tried to do an emergency repair to get home (tape). That crap hose just crumbled. Your car, your choice. Just feel obligated to say so. Good luck.
