Fuel line routing - rear

PostPost by: JLescenski » Sun Jan 24, 2021 5:24 am

I was routing the hand brake cable and started looking at where the fuel line goes. If anyone has any pictures of the fuel line routing around the differential area I would love to see them. There is a mark on the underside of the body that looks like a mark from the fuel line routing, but I thought the body sat down against the cross member. The holes look like the fuel line should be routed between the cross member and the differential, but there is not much room there

Hi John,
As you suspected, it runs over the crossmember then straight into the front vertical wall of the boot to the tank stub.

If your body is not fitted yet don't forget to feed it through as you lower the body onto the chassis !
