Any chance someone could take a few pictures of how the fuel line runs from the tank to the fuel pump? I'm having a hell of a time figuring out the routing as I removed it about 8 years ago. Ugh.

Show me yours I'll show you mine. reinstalled dash.I redid all connections under dash to firewall and steering column. I actually redid all connections on the car front to back,need a shot of wires from steering column to firewall and where speedometer heat control cables run. heat control cable over steering column or over cradled or where? pictures are of original fuel line before I installed 3/8 copper nickle line. I think 1 front line is missing.return line was broke off in front. in front line runs along frame .I'll post more pic when I find them. 1971 11-70 build

These are aftermarket stainless lines but route the same. The larger tube is the fuel line, the other is the tube running from the charcoal filter back to the tank. Starting from the tank, back side of shock mount beam, under the frame, on frame outbd side, then around fwd attach point for leaf spring, then fwd inbd of the rocker panel, jogs over and through hole in cross frame (mine has frame stiffeners) then fwd along inbd side of frame next to engine.

Second tube is capped off due to no charcoal filter, fuel line has rubber hose going to engine line
