5/8 from the tank to pump thru filter. 5/8 or 1/2 up to the engine after the last pump then split to 3/8 to the heads. 3/8 from head to the reg. You can use the stock feed line for the return line or run your own 3/8 line back.

Re: another fuel system

1/2" but you want a larger diameter especially on the vacuum side as these pumps are pushers.

For your reference:

a -2 hose has an I.D. of 1/8" [306 only]
a -3 hose has an I.D. of 3/16"
a -4 hose has an I.D. of 1/4"
a -5 hose has an I.D. of 5/16"
a -6 hose has an I.D. of 3/8"
a -8 hose has an I.D. of 1/2"
a -10 hose has an I.D. of 5/8"
a -12 hose has an I.D. of 3/4"
a -16 hose has an I.D. of 1"
a -20 hose has an I.D. of 1 1/4"

Re: another fuel system

Working on mine also. Want to use braided SS but the hydraulic shop only has it teflon lined. Will that be okay to use?

Re: another fuel system

Remember SS braided unless it has a plastic over skin will chafe and cut wear everything it touches. They look nice but can be a real headache. ITPS are covered to prevent that issue. Good looks and no issues.

Re: another fuel system

Have the ITP RR & Delete. Was wanting to replace all the line from the tank to the engine since I'm moving the pump.
