Fuel Line Routing 54 F100?

Does the fuel line off the tank go through one of the holes in the frame to get inside the frame rail ? One of the holes has an old grommet in it. Same question about the sending unit wires. I assume the line runs inside of the frame rail to the front cross member then back to the fuel pump on the 223?
Thanks
Bob

Well in looking at the drawings, it appears to run on top of the frame until it gets adjacent to the steering box, then dips through and inside.

Julie,

I know that diagram says 48-55 fuel system but that pic is a of a flathead and it is different for a '54. Without going out to look at mine (it is sleeting and freezing rain today in Central PA) I know that the line runs further forward on top the frame rail and then comes across to the front of the engine to the fuel pump which is on the front left side of the engine.

Now from memory, I think the line does run on top of the frame the whole way. My line does have like an 'C' curve as it goes around the inner fender, I think...

That grommet may be where the wiring harness for the tail and stop lights go to the back.

Could be ABE.

That picture is out of the 48-56 Illustrations Manual and I'm finding it to have alot of mistakes in order to provide "typical" pictures. What they did to do that was take the best line art they had and modify it to show a "general" configuration of a system - thus the flathead (up to 53). You know this is true also because the 48-52 gas tanks weren't under the running boards either.

I don't have a 53-56 Chassis Parts Manual like I do for the 48-52s so I have to depend on the condensed version - which I find to contain a substantial lack of accuracy in attention to detail from year to year.

Important thing is - between all concerned - the OPs question got answered - Thanks!

My 54 with a 223 had the fuel line routed just as the diagram for the 6 cyl that Julie posted shows. It came out of the tank and followed inside of the frame rail...held in place with clips, then had a small piece of flexible tubing near the steering box then followed the top of the frame rail around the front of the engine to the right hand side to another flexible tube that was connected to the fuel bowl.

I saved it as a complete assy so when I get ready to replace it I will have a template to use.

FORD14TPU is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
Having just looked at the gasline on my 55 F250 239Y the line is on the top inside edge of the frame rail when it come out from under the firewall. slight dogleg and a single clip just aft of the steering box. stays ontop of the center of the framerail till it's past the steering box. Then makes an S curve out,down and inside the frame rail. that S curve is inside a section of what looks like wire loom slipped on the tubing before the S was formed. then travels to the front left area of the inside frame rail and kicks out towards the fuelpump and ends.

Sounds like I should wait until the inner fenders and tin work next to the radiator support are mounted before running the line. Thank you all.
