What's the smartest way to go from the tank to the filter with a aftermarket in tank pump? I'm pretty sure the stock line is fucked, and autozone's parts dudes got nothin. I found info online that says the lines from the filter to the fuel rail are 5/16 or 18mm, and the fuel tank is 12mm. They had high pressure rubber hose that would work for the fuel rail, but not for the gas tank. It seems like a few people have had issues with the high pressure hose as far as longevity, so I figured I'd ask here what people use for fuel line

In-tank: Submersible fuel line. 5/16in.
Fuel tank to engine compartment: Find a good used one or make one using AN flares, good lines, and some hardlines.

For the in tank stuff, the DW200 pump I got came with a little section of tubing. I think I should have almost everything covered to get Helga started assuming of course the motor isn't complete junk.

Fellow mentally challenged bretheren: seriously be an adult about organizing your parts and labeling bolts and stuff and when you take stuff apart. I always wondered what took these wrinkly old bastards soooooooooooooooo long to put there project cars together and what costed so much money and now I understand why.

I lost a lot of crap on this car. I need new brackets for the alternator, a little pile of bolts when I should have a lot. I mean, I'm not gonna be too too hard on myself because honestly if your judging me based on how responsible I am with my project car you can suck it dude. The thing I love about helga the most is I have my very own little turd I can do whatever I want to with no real consequenses. The haters try to make fun of her because she doesn't run, despite the amount of time I've put into her but that isn't where the value lies. I work on vehicles doing the gay crap the worlds drivers, mechanics, service managers, pretty much everyone has decided is too unprofitable and too much of a waste of time to be valueable, but it has to be done perfect because if you make a mistake you will either put people's lives in danger or cost them thousands of dollars. But everyone worthy of such responsibility has decided getting oil on themselves (ruining their appearance and hence almost entire value to human society, especially American society), mounting difficult tires, etc is beneath them. So they let a little turdlet like me do it.

I used to be mad salty about it, but I don't care anymore because I get paid and you gotta get paid so you can get laid. But I like having a car I can do stupid shit to without having some soccer mom/dismissive old white dude moan about how their crossover SUV/stupid F-250 spare-tire-under-car-turd getting fucked up by me.

I totally understand the emotions because I wouldn't want anyone to fuck my car up either, but the life of a tire technician is brutal sometimes( if you take it seriously of course. If you don't care it's the best thing in the world. Le sigh) and if I didn't have helga to work on and screw up and laugh about it I would probably go insane and start hunting anybody with a set of keys.

But if you wanted to be, you know, productive, you can avoid a lot of the headaches just by not being a retard and labeling things, reading, planning, etc. I think that stuff is really gay despite the benefits and only do them when forced because Im an idiot, but if you value those things you probably won't run into the same problems as I. Your probably really lame like Vermont Sportscar tho. They were really stupid to ignore my letter about internships. Because now they are my mortal enemies and I might be a broke idiot, but these smart rich people need their vacations and there high salaries and I can survive on ramen noodles in a car and I WONT STOP NEVER EVER EVER
#cockaroachSWAGson

From what I'm seeing, the technicians and the engineers position at the top is very safe for now. But the drivers: You better be ready for KANSEI DORIFTOx10!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And keeping up once or twice won't be enough. Your gonna have to match it every single time, every single stage. Only then will I accept defeat. I can't predict the future but your only hope is if my stupidity ends my career before it starts. If I touch gravel I'm going fast Ricky bobby

Dude...

Ramen noodles come in little plastic tubs. These are great for organizing hardware.

Keep on keeping on.
