I am redoing a '52 Commander and I need to clean or replace the fuel line. What is the best method for really cleaning an old fuel line ??......Brad

Personally, if there's any doubt (that is you can see it's crushed, worn or crusty-rusty) I'd replace it. If it looks faily decent, compressed air's about as good as anything. Then use an in-line filter, just before the fuel pump.:)

Shoot carb cleaner through, let it sit, repeat several times, follow with compressed air.

For as much trouble as it is, you should just replace the line. Saves a lot of headaches later, doesn't cost much, and isn't hard to do.
