what is it......?
Hello, I have to hacksaw my fuel line near my carb(1980 deville 6.0 ltr. 4 barrel rochester carb.) I cannot get 5/8" flare nut off. I want to send carb. in
to be rebuilt. does anyone know what material fuel line is, it looks like it could be stainless steel, I hope not.
It should be double wall steel pipe, but not stainless.
You could try to spray the nut with some rust penetrant a few days in a row and see if that will let the pipe break loose from the nut, but it may not work. They used to do that a lot.
You can cut through the pipe, just try to do it on a straight section of the pipe so you can install a section of "repair hose" and clamps later on.
The best thing to do would be to replace the pipe from end to end but they don't prefabricate them so you'd have to make it yourself, not an easy undertaking.
Carbs didn't have much fuel pressure so patching it with fuel hose should be relatively safe.
hey creeker how does that 368 run..it dosent have the v8-6-4 im sure right!cause that one had some problems with it..so im just wondering how the 368 ran rather than the v8-6-4.. cause i want to look in to getting the 368 ci without the v-8-6-4...your has roughly 150 hp right??

Re: what is it......?
You can cut or put a switch in the wire coming from the transmission that lets the controller know the car is in 3rd gear to disable the modulated displacement function. But it won't make the car run any differantly if the MD function is working properly. Assuming the DFI system is working as well, a MD motor should run better than a carbureted 368.
