I use a stock fuel pump, with rochester 500 cfm carb. I see some guys running 1/2 fuel line, ive always used cheap 3/8 fuel line. Is it worth getting a 1/2 line if it can only take 3/8s at the pump?

for a 2bbl i'd stick with 3/8. thats all i've run and have had no trouble. we run slightly larger 2bbls and make 400-450hp.

does any one make a 8AN fitting that adapts to a 3/8 fuel line? I have been to every speedshop in my town and everyone looks at me like I am stupid when I ask. One of my friends told me to go to the truck stop and ask but I havent had time. Any info is greatly appreciated.

Exactly what are you trying to connect? If you've got the 8AN line coming up to the carb, then just take the fitting out of the carb and use the same adapter that connects a Holley carb to 8AN line.
Or have I missed the boat?

We sell all kinds of adapters, just let me know what you're trying to connect, I'm sure we can find it.

We went to the local Napa store and got a 8n hydraulic fitting that had a 3/8 barbed end, and used that, just had to cut off the crimping collar with a hack saw so we could use a hose clamp on it.
