Fuel to Carb fuel line routing

Looking for some ideas to route the fuel line to carb using an inline filter. I'm going to be using braided line with a filter but haven't come up with the best type of route. Also using a mid mount alternator. I'm thinking of putting a filter right off the fuel inlet then hose down to the pump. However I can't make a line that small as I don't have a flaring tool for 37 degree. Any help. thoughts, ideas??

Thanks, Brian

Re: Fuel to Carb fuel line routing

I see you have what appears to be an -AN fitting off your carb fuel feed line. Many companies make small filters that will thread right on to those, I know Holley is one. Might be the simplest way to get one on there.

Yes it's AN-6 fitting. I can't find a filter that will screw on. All the filters I have seen have male AN-6 ends.

Re: Fuel to Carb fuel line routing

You could use a female-to-female coupler in there, or possibly change out your tee?

Carb to firewall, drill a hole, and then under the drivers side carpet, cut a small bit of the door seal and route it under the door, bring it across to the transmission tunnel and drill a hole, bring it across under the seat, drill anther hole, go through that to under the truck, run it back by wrapping it around the exhaust, cut the hose and splice it back together, run it across in front of the Cross member, use the good quality pipe cleaners to secure it there, run it up the frame, use stove pipe wire to secure it there, find a hole in the frame, go through that and back to the tank, then your there, just like I do it. Oh, and use the cheap made in China clamps, it'll be fine. Easy peazy.
