    Hi I have a 1973 Chev C20 with dual tanks, it had a manual valve on the floor when I bought it and a fibreglass tank on one side, i have converted the tank to a steel factory type and have some electric parts from a 1976 and want to convert the 1973 to the electric type and wondering if anyone has a line routing diagram for this? (were the lines all rubber from the factory?)

    thank you

    Looks like you got all you needed (and exactly the stuff I was going to send you) with your question you asked on another forum. I put the link below.....

    dual fuel tank hose routing - The 1947 - Present Chevrolet & GMC Truck Message Board Network

    Check out the link and you should see the help you need. Also, you might want to look at an LMC truck catalog (or Brothers, etc) and look at how the lines that are offered for sale are looking and how they would fit on your truck.

    Well....to clarify....I don't "lurk" on any other sites besides this one. I found the posting you had made by doing a simple Internet search to try and find some information to help you. I immidiately recognized the similarities and clicked on the link.

    Glad you got what you needed. As far as the other site I mentioned....here is the link to request a free copy of the catalog. Just fill it out like you would if you are ordering it. You just have to give your address since it is free.

    1947-87 Chevrolet & GMC Classic Truck Parts Catalogs

    I also have this catalog at home on my laptop. If you need a .pdf copy....just send me a private message with your email address and I will forward the file to you.

    Another catalog to consider is from "year one". I believe they charge a few bucks for it....but it is a well done catalog.
