Just ordered the adapters to splice in the stock fuel filter to a 1/2" hose barb. The attachment on the tank is 1/2" so i just need to get some 1/2" hose and clamps to finish the feedline off. For the return im adapting from 3/8" orb to 1/4" hose barb. Some 1/4" hose is all thats needed to run from the fpr back down to the oe hard return line.

Any suggestions for local parts stores that would carry 1/2" and 1/4" fuel injection hose sold by the foot?

Baxters carries it as well by the foot.

If that doesn't work. Oil filter sales, fluid connector products each will stock it I'm guessing.

Napa probably will, but it won't be your cheapest option. I'd try & swing for a Parker store if you can, it's like a candy shop for cobbling. http://ppm.waw.pl/kuratela.html

Yeah depending on their focus, places that deal strictly with hydraulics and hoses carry allllll the fittings you'll ever need, hose too.

My lps carrys 3/8 and 5/16 fuel injection hose at almost 8 dollars a foot. They can order 1/2 inch but its just over 10 a foot plus the frieght. Like the others have said, check a hydraulic store, but the hose can be kind of cumbersome to work with since most will only have 2 wire at the lightest. I ended up running the Russel Proclassic hose from Summit. For the amount you need and the number of reusable fittings youll want, it could be worth looking into, plus its hella flexable, very easy to work with, and in my case, was able to reuse most all of what I had for the new motor, just by moving some fittings around.

After some struggling i finally was able to order my clutch through email to clutchnet. Their website was having lots of issues. And they didnt answer their phone when i called. They are fast through email though!

So i have my saab 240mm pressure plate now. (thanks again Dan!) I should probably pick up the dowel pins and hardware before i take it to the machine shop to have the bolt circle added. What do you guys like to do for pressure plate hardware? anything fancy?

I need to make a decision on length as well. Ill probably measure to see how much material i have with that bolt circle diameter but is there a minimum?

Its getting closer guys! Thanks for the help!

For hydraulic shop locally, we use Premier Rubber just down the street. I don't recall their price on pushlock, but it was pretty reasonable last time we bought it IIRC, and they stock it.

I got these grade 10.9 flanged headed 8mm 1.25 20mm bolts from parkrose. The next shortest was 16mm. Hopefully when i have the bolt circle added they have the material to drill deep enough for the 20mm. The dowel pins are 1/4" Ill drill out the pressure plate to fit these snugly. I think they are 3/4" long.

I believe he's referring to the grade.

Thoughts?
