Hi
Anyone know the diameter of the fuel line (diesel) feed to the pump?
I am hiding at work and concidering buying some bits to run my 80 on oil and I need to know the fuel line diameter and it's lowest mpg it can run at. Anyone?

Yep he is the one who has inspired me! Slightly worried about the strain on the pump but if I process the oil well and get it nice an hot before I switch over then fingers crossed it will work trouble free.
Thanks

I am going to tackle my fuel lines soon as one had nearly rubbed through on the pump linkage. If you mean the ones between the filter and the pump i can normally get this quite cheap through our engine reconditioners who have sheds full of the stuff.

internal diameter is 10mm or 3/8". I have a heat exchanger with fittings to suit an 80 series going spare, I bought it from the veg place in wolves when I had my 80 and never got round to fitting it.
