I have a new (Hillbilly Wizard) lift pump in-coming. My truck is at my business 40 miles from my home garage. I’m trying to gather up everything I might need. What size/lengths of gas line should I have on hand? RTV and grease (to hold the shaft out of the way)… any other supplies, I haven’t thought of?48DFD512-A92A-416F-8193-B5D24A493B3E.jpeg

5/8 and 11/16 flare nut wrenches for the solid fuel line.

15mm socket for the solid fuel line holder halfway up the front of the engine

1/4" drive sockets have done me well for the actual mount bolts. Swivel sockets work well too.

A stool or something to stand on for trying to do the stuff on top.

Flattened card board box for the underneath work.

There is a company selling brand new flexible fuel hoses for 1975 vintage Corvettes. Exact same part number as the CUCV fuel hose.

Thanks - this is exactly what I was looking for. I’m going to clean it up and track the lines this weekend. Should have the pump by next weekend - all the fun.

Make sure you get the cover plate gasket and start every bolt and fitting first before tightening any of them. You can do 99% of the job top side. And as easy as it is to remove Gen it sure beats having dirt and oil in your face. I have encountered a few that the 3/8 pump bolts were seized in the housing and ended up breaking the fuel pump off and replacing the bolts after I man handled them to get them out. Be careful and it should be a fairly easy job. Good Luck.
