'63 fuel line question

Replaced the manifold on my '63 4-cyl. 2000, and the steel fuel line doesn't line up like it did with the original manifold.

It originally ran from the tank, through an opening between the manifold and the block, and to the sediment bowl.

Ford shows only one fuel line (rigid steel).

Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

Same happened to me - You have a fuel line for the 6x1/8x1 series - not the post 1962 to 1964 thousand series. I'll bet it won't even fit your bowl or tank.

Go back to FNH and insist that they look up the proper line. 99% of the parts from the 6x1 series fits the 4 cyl. 2000 perfectly, but you have found one of the 1% that does not.

As for homemade - I thought about that too, but the line isn't just flared tubing - and it is AWFUL close to the exhaust manifold. Factory line made me feel much safer in the seat on a hot day.

Good Luck!

hi JAE, I think my first stop would be the parts counter at the New Holland dealer...depends on how far out of alignment it is.
You may not like this--cut a short section out of the fuel line beginning about an inch away from the fitting at the bowl, and join with gas hose and clamps. Or buy a tubing bender at an auto parts and reshape the line. Or an even harder way--start from scratch with new tubing, in which case you'll also need a flaring tool. Steel brake lines are 'double flare'--don't know if steel gas lines are single or double. regards, George
