Shaped Fuel Hose


Recommended Posts

The problem is the 3TJ fuel pipe is getting so old they can snap.

Well I made a replacement. The biggest problem is making the bends. First I cut some wire coat hangers and taped them to 300mm of 8mm ID fuel hose.


Then went to a printing shop and got them to wire bind them. That meant I could bend the hose without it kinking. I bent it around a steel tube chair.


After that I clipped the binding and hanger wire back so I can put the tube clips on and a flexible end for the tank.

As a little mod to this 

When you trim the coat hanger wire bend it back on itself first then cut it ... this will make a hook so the binding wire dosent slip off
