Vendor error...ugh

Hi Guys..

Ordered the fuel return line for the Spyder from my vendor, they sent me a brake line kit.

Ugh..

Can someone tell me if I can use a 'stock' line from an auto parts store and what size it should be?

Thanks

If it was Clarks, just give them a call. I was having a new top installed last winter, the well fabric they sent me had a faded spot. Called them, sent a pic and a new one was in the shop the next day.

I don't know the size but it is tiny. The kit comes with the T and all the clips, clamps etc as well as the filter so I would get the kit swapped for the correct one.

3/16", same as front to rear brake line before they went to 1/4" front to rear brake line.

Maybe same part from vendor?

Filter a lot harder to source than the 3/16" steel brake line.

You can use 3 /16" Cunifer and never need to replace it again.....thumbs up

May want to use the metal T from CCP as there seems to have been issues with the normal replacements - not being ethanol compatible and failing in short time. I was thinking the steel line was smaller than 3/16" but maybe it is 3/16.
