Post Fuel issue

So, '84 S&S used to run great, now it "fuel starves" around 5 ball in the slalom course and dies. It fires and idles fine. Carb was rebuilt two months ago, and it's been suggested that the fuel line be replaced. I plan to make a trip to West Marine for the USCG approved hose.

1) Anyone know the diameter of this line (boat is miles away right now and I'm u/a to check).

2) I'm going to have to "guestimate" the length needed as well, if you happen to know or have a reasonable guess

Thanks very much for listening, I'll take my answer off the air, and let you know if this fix works.

Mine is miles away also, but as I remember.....

My guess is 3/8 in..

As for the length, 10 ft.? But I would buy at least 12 ft., it is cheap and you don't want a short hose.

The only fuel issue I got is that the dang stuff is going to put me in the poor house at the rate it keeps rising$$$$

Sorry for the threadjack. The Friday syndrome is kicking in. I think I'll have a drink soon.

Lotta help, lotta help...

Well, the fuel hose replacement didn't take. It's on to the fuel pump, and a trip to my M/C repair guru...
