  • 60 Lark gas line

    Wanting to replace the entire gas like in the Lark... removed what looks like the original line- except it's 1/4"- like brake line...

    Question: Is this the correct size? the nipples on the inline filters are 3/8"... seems to make more sense to me...

    Which size should it be?

      Thanks, Frank...

      Opinions: Is there any advantage (or disadvantage) to going to a bigger size?

        My personal opinion is if they were designed with a certain size fuel line then that should be sufficient to supply what fuel is needed by that particular engine.There would not be an advantage to going bigger unless you plan to modify the engine with more carburation etc.and or other mods.
