You need a 189888 Fuel Flex hose available at Studebaker Vendors at studebakervendors.com

If you join the Studebaker Drivers Club, you will receive Turning Wheels Monthly Mag. and it is the best! These kind of things like Parts, Parts Vendors Cars wanted and for sale etc. are available there and MUCH more. We would be glad to have you, there is joining info at the top of this page.

Most people just install a brass female to male barbed hose nipple connector to join the hard fuel line/compression nut to a piece of 5/16" Fuel Hose about 8 or 9 inches long to connect to the fuel pump instead of the hard to find at non-Studebaker Parts sources flex hose. You would also need a Male fitting thread to 5/16" hose fitting at the Fuel Pump.
