Airkewld’s Stainless Steel Fuel Hardline

I’m adding this to my to get list. It looks cool and it’s a good idea.

Airkewld’s Stainless Steel Hardline system is here, and you immediately have faith in your fuel system.

The kit comes pre-bent with stainless steel .375″ tubing that can be cut to length to fit your application. This will do all the fuel lines needed in the engine bay that is not running a stock fuel pump application. You will need a soft line from the back of the tin union to the chassis fuel line outlet.

The kit comes with everything you see in the picture in blue.

Carb Bolts/Washers
B nuts
Gauge adapter
Liquid filled psi gauge
Tin union with nut
2x mandrel bent carb lines
1x center line
1x drop down line

You will need a cutting device of some kind, we recommend a tubing cutter. You will need a 37 degree flaring tool as well. Check our tool section if you don’t already have them.

Pulling the Gas Tank

I have a bit of down time, so I thought maybe I should do something with the ol’ girl.  Popping the gas tank out seems easy enough.

First, I need to get the fuel expansion chamber out of the way.  I’ll just leave the screw in place for now.  I’ve never messed with crimps like this (VW newb, yes).  I’ll figure it out as I go.  I’m sure this stuff is all common hardware, however one of the purposes for this blog is to remind me what things look like before I took it apart. I’m trying to avoid a “where did this come from” moment. I know that’s wishful thinking.

Now just four bolts and it should pop right out.  Disconnect the fuel line on the bottom.   Don’t forget the wire to the sending unit.

The bulkhead and beam appear to be in better condition than I expected.

For reference, these parts are in tote 21321.

Ps.  I don’t see a problem here.
