when the main line that runs down the mid section of the pan leaks, what is the usual line that replaces it?

should I use a 1/4" steel brake line??

seems as though I have a fuel leak . the car interior wreaks of fuel.. the floor board is wet near the petals.

I pulled the stock tank and the attached fuel line fell right off Rolling Eyes

thats before loosening it at all....


now it has new line in a loop with a large filter in line.. then it attaches to the central hard line for the car..

found it pretty easy to place a gas can on the steering arms below the tank to drain the tank...

no more fuel smell in car..

I even siliconed all the holes under the front bonnet as to cut down crisp morning air flow en route to work..
