Not if you do the coupler mod:

https://thefactoryfiveforum.com/show...hlight=coupler

If you finagle the bolts right and have nimble fingers you can install the couplers now even with the tank in place---you won't be able to do that after putting the trunk floor in.

Are you using an in tank electric fuel pump? If not you do not want to have the fuel filter there. The filter should be on the pressureized side of the pump before the carb, not on the suction side.

I will look onto the mod.

I am going to use a external electric pump from Breeze for carbs. I put the supplied parts in the tank.

All I can do is follow the instructions which I'm sure you know says to put it there. If this needs to be changed I will have to research it and change it.

Pics with the change in plumbing off the tank?

I would also love to see someone's pic of the fuel pump and loction

Gas tank and filter installed. I followed Jeff's advise:

Ratched straps
Long screws are a must!
Don't forget to bend the flange strait!

The loop for the front strap was not fun!!!! But I got them filed/opened up. That's important because they have to be able to come off again I believe to install jacks/bumpers.

The back of the the tank strap did not come flush with the frame. I figured that was ok.

It been a couple week since I posted but I just now made significant progress. I lost track of time so I will up date days and hours later.

Brake lines way easier. About 90% done.

The hardlines are in except a foot I need on the PS rear. I dont have rear brakes yet or the bracket I need to finish but it's almost done.

I still need to do the reservoirs. I have a good idea what to do now. Then for the most part that's it till I get the rear brake.

Fuel lines are almost done the fuel pump bracket self tapping screws just dont work IDK.

If any one has suggestion let me know. I will post more detail about the pump later. I tried three times now to mount it but the screws keep stripping out the hole. I start supper small and keep working up but its not working.

It the electric carb fuel pump from breeze.

Jason,
Maybe it's the camera angle but it sure looks like you have a kink where the line enters the Tee fitting on the LF.

Mr. Jeff you made me nervous. I agree it looks like a kink. It was the camera angle.

Thank you so much

Fuel and Brake lines and Electric Fuel Pump

I have been having a hard time finding time to work on the Cobra lately.

I have been doing some miscellaneous tasks. The biggest has been fuel and brake lines.

I was going to use a mechanical fuel pump originally but I could not make the eccentric bolt on within tolerance. So I scratched that. (Made the fuel line easier in the long run). I therefore need a electric fuel pump for carburetor.

I ended up having a hard time making the self taping screws work on the frame. The space is tight and it's hard to drill and screw anything in.

I ended up making s bracket for it and buying bolts and nuts and riveting it to the frame. I'm pretty happy with it. It is really the first thing I have done if script so to speak. I even remembered to silicon it to the frame. The bracket allowed me to lower the pump which means it will be accessed easier after the trunk aluminum is in.

I placed some tubing but I'm going to order braided line.

Tomorrow I'm going to mount a bracket for the brake reservoirs and the reservoirs.

Jason

Day 44

4 of 105 total hour

5-17-19

Finished up the brake reservoirs. I went with drilling into the front of the foot box and using the plastic connectors. I left slack inside the foot box I know that's a tight fit with other components so I wanted to be able to move the hose. I can always shorten it later.

I still need to cut the bracket down I will do that at a later date.

I also tighten all the fuel hose down just in case I dont use a different product.

I also got the rear brake brackets in and finished off all my brake lines.

I drilled the two holes for the wire harness. I did not find the 1.25 circular drill but ready to use. I ended up with uneven holes.

I noticed I put the wrong clamps on the return fuel line, too big. I will replace those with the right ones.

I had to go with a bigger return fuel line with 3/8 fitting.

How do I go from the hard line to the smaller return port on the gas tank?

I will check. But it was the hose that came with the brakes.
