'51 8N Fuel Line

I bought a fuel line from another supplier but when I installed it on the sediment bowl, it is about 3" blow the carburetor.
There seems to be no way of bending it to make it work. I know I can cut it and put a rubber gas line sleeve on it, but that takes away from the original factory design.

Do I need another fuel line from another company, or do you have another solution?

I have been restoring it for the past 5-1/2 years and I'm almost there. You have helped me so much in the past, and I appreciate
your help this time.

(Yes, this is a trailer queen deluxe. LOL!)

Three inches is quite a huge error. As mentioned, first verify you have the correct sediment bulb assembly, then the correct carb and the brass fuel inlet elbow is pointing up, and finally that wherever you bought your current fuel line that they sent you the right one. It sounds to me like they sent you the NAA style. I'd check the shipping list and package part number and if so, send it back for the right one at their expense of course. I also do not recommend you use any rubber, plastic, nylon, or copper for fuel lines for safety's sake. Dennis Carpenter makes the correct fuel line, pre-bent exactly, fits perfectly, and all other suppliers buy from him.

If you have the right one as RG says. The gas line runs above the plug wires and close to the bottom of the gas tank. Leave the line going into the sed bowl screwed in but not tight and push up and align the other end to attach to carb elbow. If this does not work send a photo.

It's perplexing. All the other lines work and fit, just not this one.

I'll post/send a pic tomorrow. Thanks!

As R. Geiger said, you have the wrong sediment bowl or the wrong line.

Assuming you have the correct sediment bowl, the one I got here from our hosts at YT works like champ.
