I am in the process of replacing the well worn fuel lines in my 914. I have heard there are stainless steel replacements made for the plastic ones. Does anybody here know where I can get these. Is there a kit available?

I think Tangerine Racing is the one that makes the kit. I can call them on Monday to see if I can get you a deal on them.

'75 with a 1.8.

I am going to do some PCA DE and time trial events. Several people I have talked to tell me I really need to replace those plastic fuel lines.

On my 914 race car I replaced all the fuel lines with new rubber lines. If you can't find steel, it's an easy alternative and much better than thirty year old plastic.

most people prefer the 2.0, but I like the 1.8 personally. I think it winds up a little better, and sounds just 4% better.

Yeah, it looks like I cannot supply them for any cheaper than Tangerine can, so you may want to just order from them. Use the link, or call.

Call Chris @ Tangerine (860) 647-8719, he is a good guy.
