    Does anyone know where to buy bulk 95mm wet hose? It would be greatly appreciated. As far as the fuel pumps go, I'm going to remove them. I have already found replacements if I decide to go that route or the mechanical pumps give up the ghost 👻.

      When I have purchased this in the past, the company has always needed to special order it.
      However, you might be OK with the 3-3/4" if you use the T-bolt clamps.

      95mm = 3.74016"

          Personally I’d put the mechanical fuel pumps back into action, they have proven to be a very reliable fuel pump since the first sbc was manufactured.

              Gary, I'm with Dave.... go back to the mechanical fuel pumps.

              One nice aspect of the Carter mechanical fuel pump.....




              ...... is that you can loosen the screws (typically only while new) and index the inlet/outlet ports to suit your needs.



              As long as you use the proper barbed fittings and clamps, you can safely use the Type A1-15 USCG approved fuel line from the pumps to the carburetors.
