This is the second time that my hoses to the rear tank keep getting blown out. I thought that I had them far enough away from the headers, but just the heat in the area ruins the hose. I thought about running some copper tubing in its place under the battery tray to the frame. I could use commpresion fittings to attach the tubes to the hose for a leak free connection. With the fender well headers there is not a lot of other places to run the hoses out of the way. Any other ideas? <IMG SRC="smilies/confused.gif" border="0">

Not sure what length you're gonna need, but I was looking at gas line, that was all metal, that you use to hook up a stove.
That might work, not sure of the fittings needed.

Also there's a type of goodyear line that can take that type of heat.

Pretty sure power steering line would work too.

I ran 3/8 copper line from the engine bay all the way to the rear tank. I utilized compression fittings on the line and it works like a charm. The line is held onto the frame by wire clamps

I have one line out of the manifold going to the rear tank, And one line goes to the front. They come out of the manifold on oppiste ends. I think I will try some hard line in the area, with a heat sheild. It would be cheaper. Thanks for the info.
