73 fuel pump hoses
« on: November 14, 2009, 04:51:24 PM »
I put a motor in for a friend in his 73 bus, but I'm not sure which hose goes where on his fuel pump. (my bus is FI) It's stock, and there are two large fittings and one small. Obviously one attaches from the fuel tank, and one goes to the carb, but I dunno which, or where the little one goes to! Can anyone advise? Thanks as always!!

I just want to make sure that the bus has a stock engine.  It should have a pancake motor, correct.?

I'll assume that and say that I believe the larger line comes in from the fuel tank.  Its been a long time since I worked on a carbureted bus, but if you look, the lines should point in the general direction they go.  One will point upward  toward the engine and the other will point back toward the fuel tank.

Hope this helps.  Good luck.

Actually the two larger fittings both point upwards, and could easily run in either direction, and there is a smaller tube out of the front which points downward.
