350 TBI fuel lines: Where can I find them?

I have been searching high and low for the fuel lines that run off the TB and into the lines below the cab and I cannot find them. Anyone know where I can find them? Thanks.

I've done three things for TBI lines:
1) Used hacked up stock lines from the original engine I swapped in
2) Used some replacement "barbed" fittings... I want to say it was centech but wouldn't swear to it
3) Used some unbent lines I got off ebay. They are pretty thick for fuel lines and are the first I've really required a bender to adjust.

I really like the unbent lines because I can route them where I'd like... as well as being very thick.

From what I can tell these will work.

Im going to go this route when I put my fuel cell in. Currently I have the lines from the donor truck going down to the frame rails where they tie in with rubber line to the stock hard line. Seems to work fine for now. But once I get the fuel cell in Ill have to convert to AN lines so might as well replace the whole line.

I bought fuel line repair kits and double flared them, and used unions...that way my fuel system is all stock but I can use regular brake lines to replace sections.

I have been to a bunch of junkyards and all the ones I found were kinked or had the same problem I had; the SS wrap had been burned off in a few spots and the rubber was starting to bubble/crack.

I think I am going to make my own lines. The new summit store is 30 minutes south of me and I am going to pick up all the supplies tonite. What size fittings/unions fit the existing TBI unit and fuel lines. Also, what size line should I buy? Thanks.

That's a real good idea. One of these days, I'll have to make some -AN lines for mine....my braided lines are pretty craptacular and will cut the shit out of you if you're not careful!
