69 396 Fuel line

I'm still in the process of getting my Nova back on the road in
fairly correct condition.

The fuel line stops about mid-passenger door and previously
continued with a rubber hose.

Does this look to be original to the car?
I was assuming that it came with one single continuous line?

Thanks for your help.

nope that is all original! the factory put a small piece of rubber line there to absorb any movement between the subframe and the body of the car...its supposed to have a short piece of rubber there.... by the way your line looks to be in very good shape too!

Gas Line

My 69 L78 is the same, a good place to put a filter.

So let me get this straight, is there rubber hose from there to the fuel pump then? Can anyone post a picture of the way the line is then routed from the pump to the carb? Thanks.

Routing from pump to carb and distribution depends if it's an L78, or L34 application. You can get either in kit form pre formed with distribution Y block for L78 from classic, Right stuff, etc.,
It appears you're runnung a 3/8 fuel line which would be correct for the L78 app.

72 fuel lines

I have a 72 and am replacing my stock small fuel lines and sending unit to larger diameter line/sending unit. The original sending unit had one small fuel line coming out and the replacement with larger fuel line has an extra smaller line coming out which i think would be a return line. What is necessary to do with this line? Also... Located behind the back passenger seat is a canister that has 4 lines coming from it. Does anyone have a diagram of where these lines go and if they are all necessary?
