2) What size of hose clamps do I need for connecting the 5/16 ID fuel lines to the steel lines (both in the engine compartment and under the tank in the rear)?!

Thx in advance -
Its not a big deal to purge the air from the lines....if you leave them disconnected up front when you fill the tank, gravity will fill most of the lines as you add fuel. Then the last little bit can be purged out with the primer pump. When we re-did all the lines on one of our cars, I pumped the primer about 60-70 times and it was good to go. It sounds like a lot, but thats 2-3 pumps per second for only a half a minute or so.

Hose clamps...

Does anybody have the metric size of the hose clamps I need to get for the fuel lines replacement project?!

Is it the 12-20mm, 15-19mm, 16-25mm, or 16-30mm size?!

Please advise -
Thx,
James

Any of the first three you listed should work fine. The last one would probably be too big.
