Pre-bent Fuel, Brake lines


I received another parts suppliers catalog and again no pre bent lines for my truck. Not that I am at that part of the project but I cannot seem to find these parts. Will I have to bend all of my lines?
1) why do they seem to skip 1966 F250 2WD 352V8 with these products?
2) Are F100 fuel lines that different than the f250?
3) Are the F100 brake lines a different size?

Regards,

I checked the Inlinetube.com catalog and all they list is the 66 F100 and 150. However I believe they will take yours make up a new set for you.

I didn't know about inlinetube. I'll call them today and let you guys know what they say. I'm just south of Longmont Colorado.

I called Inline and talked to their tech support guy, Chuck. He said if I send in my lines, they will make up the lines for my truck for "about the same price as the F100".

I still don't know why there would be a difference with the fuel lines with a F100 and F250. Maybe the brake lines.

Great forum. Thanks for the help.

Did they say if they could take measurements or whatever of the original stuff to make more sets for other people? One of the POs of my truck has gone through and replaced everything already...poorly. Looks like everything was bent around whatever round object was handy, and none of the lines were cut to fit, so there are many unneeded bends just to take up slack. Obviously I would not want that replicated in the new stainless lines, lol

they have kits already made for the 66 short and long bed trucks...

Inline tube - Online Catalog - Ford


170 bucks for Stainless Steel is not a bad price.

i'm certain the F100/"F150" listed is a typo.... they never had a F150 back then

someone needs to call them and find out.

Urbex and all,

They asked me to ship them my old lines and they will make them up. Mine are completely stock. The only line that's been messed with is from the fuel pump to the carb. Looks like dad cut it to install an inline fuel filter. I might go rubber anyway from the pump to the carb to keep the heat down of the gas going next to the engine. Don't get me started on vapor lock with the new gas...............

So Urbex, if you want to get a set from my pattern, keep in touch. The only difference is my truck is an automatic.

I wanted to update, share knowledge or lack there of with all..
I am on the hunt for various brake parts for my lady’s inventory room, I.E. SS lines/cylinders/etc..

I contacted the company this morning, they have nothing to offer for our 1966 F-250’s, in my case 4x4.

I hope everyone here has a day, if it’s good try three!
..thank you all for your input.

-Shoutout note-
“numberdummy”, I hope that I have the screen name correct..? You are very appreciated, I am just about certain that I can comfortably say that for all here at FTE.. Regardless I appreciate and thank you for your assistance, with the “wrong bed” info. Not to mention the knowledge that you have shared with all of us, I noticed you are all over the forums and you are a plethora of knowledge.

I cannot say how much time I have invested trying to find the info you shared with me. Keep in mind...
I had attempted to gather any knowledge possible from individuals that worked for Ford during the 60’s-80’s or from my 64-66 Ford shop manuals on the bed.

Simply put ?numberdummy? Is a rockstar and greatly appreciated on FTE.

Thank you all for sharing knowledge!

The elephant in the room......

Try installing pre-bent lines on an assembled truck. You have to unbend them! So, what's the point?

i'm sure they will go on a nearly bare chassis easily.
If the truck is together....you may want to bend your own.

...and pre-bent only work on bone-nuts stock vehicles. If you’ve upgraded your brakes then you’re better off bending your own lines.

Napa has brake and fuel lines that that you can bend by hand without kinking. If it's not right straighten it back out and try again. Doesn't get any easier than that.

I just upgraded the brakes on my ‘63 using Bundy tube.
Booster, dual-master and combo valve. I chose to have two front brake lines as opposed to using a Y.
I prefer the Bundy as opposed to stainless because it’s easier to work with and I prefer a double flare.
Get a decent bender and flare tool if you’re going to do your own lines.
I went with stainless and AN for the fuel line on the 460 in my ‘72.
