  • 63 Lark fuel line questions

    My Lark came to me with nothing but rubber hose from the fuel pump to the carb, and naturally I wanted to fix this. I sourced the proper Stude hard line that goes from the fuel pump to the carb, but this line has flares and nuts at both ends. The fuel pump, however, has hose nipples for both in and out connections.

    Looking at the parts manual, I see that there is an "elbow" called out for the pump-to-carb-pipe connection. Any idea what this is, or what the NAPA equivalent might be?

    Also, with a hard line from the pump to the carb, where does the fuel filter go? It was formerly in this fuel connection (laying on top of the manifold [V]

    Thanks for your help!

    Napa should have all the brass you need to plumb from the pump to the carb, as for fuel filter I would put it in the rubber section that is between the frame line and the fuel pump. Good Luck.

      Originally there was probably not an in-line filter; the sediment bowl on the pump held the filter. Fittings have probably been replaced to accomodate the rubber line, and would need replaced to accept the flared joints.
