Sorry my mistake I remember now the fuel rail is 5/8". When I did my Fore Precision Rails I bought a set - 5/16, 3/8, 1/2, 5/8, 3/4 and 7/8.

Looking good Rick!!! So the fuel line is a "bolt on"? Nothing else needed except the spring lock tools?

Another question... wondering if the 90 degree elbow is needed on the fuel rail end as it looks like the hose could just route straight towards the firewall along the top of the cam cover?? Could you look at yours and confirm if that approach would work?

Thanks! Not in a huge hurry as this is one of several winter projects that I probably will not start until after the holidays.

Just received my hose kit yesterday; it was a very long time coming to Canada!

1. Measured the length of the hose assembly stretched (from tip to tip) approximately 22 inches.
2. Measured the length of the hose (including what is hidden in the Russell Red Hose Ends) 17 inches.

Eliminating the 90 degree would likely work, but to me it looks as if a longer -6 hose would be required.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for the info!

I actually just ordered and received the parts from Summit to build a black set-up using Pro-Classic hose and black/silver hose ends. Since the hose comes in a 3 ft section, I will have more than enough to go with my planned approach of using a straight fitting at the fuel rail end and just routing the hose straight back towards the firewall. I will post up the final set-up in a new thread probably in a week or so as no time to work on it this weekend.

Finally got mine installed. Since I am using the Fore Precision Fuel Rail Line Kit I converted to a straight through fitting at the rail rather than the 90 supplied in the Russell kit.

Rick thanks. I could not get the OEM Safety Clip on at the frame rail. Did you get yours on?

Looks good! I went the same route for my black/silver set-up as I also ordered the straight fitting for the fuel rail end. When assembling that new fitting, did you need to use anything on the threads between the straight hose fitting and fuel rail adapter?

Thanks.

No, just a SAE 1 1/8 wrench on the fuel line adapter and a 6AN wrench on the hose side.

Good to know as this is my time working with -AN fittings. I may tackle this line later today, but I need to pick up an -AN wrench so I don't mess up the finish on the fitting.

I picked up this Proform AN set, includes 3, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 16 & 20 sizes for $100. This was in Canada and I am sure you could do a lot cheaper in Milwaukee. Good luck with your install.

Not sure where to look locally, but I found an 8 piece kit online for $67 shipped.

I am also about to install a set of Fore Precision Fuel Rails and I'm going to order this Russell line kit but I would also like to convert to a straight fitting at the rail end. Does anyone have the part number for the fitting I need to order? Thanks...
