Well I updated the fuel system last week while I was off for the 4th. Went from the mecanical pump and stock tank to a 10 gallon fuel cell(got the correct fuel sending unit for my car) and a A1000 pump and boost reference regulator and push lock hoses. 10 AN up, 8 AN back.

For you how hard was it dealing with the push lock hose and their fittings?  For me it was a nightmare!

Pushlok is a piece of cake.  Robert - did you heat up the hose (in boiling water or set it in the hot sun) immediately prior to pushing it on the hose end?  If not, next time do that.  It slides right on...

yeah the kids have been asking when we are going to the track. I figured my mechanical pump was close to maxed out.

Robert,
I actually cheated on the push lock, I bought the fuel pump, regulator, and lines from a guy that was parting his coupe out, so the fuel cell is new the rest is used....lol

I also picked up his Dart SHP 363 short block with forged internals and 9:1 dish pistons. Thats my winter project. Just need to figure out what power adder I am going to run.

I did buy a small water boiler (it was a small grease fryer) that I used right next to the engine but for me it was still not easy.  To get the hose all the way to the end of the connector in a few cases for me was impossible.  And I am a weight-lifter so being a weak pansy is not my excuse.

 I watched on U-Tube were they used a heat gun and heated it until it was just a hint of smoke coming off the hose and they sprayed the fitting with WD-40 to get it on. I had to do this on one hose I changed. I do know that the older the hose is the harder it is to get on the fitting.

I tried that and it did not work for me that way.

The fittings were cool right?  Not sitting in the sun or anything?

Its technique, not strength. I'm only 175#, and can put them together all day without a problem. I've used the boiling water and heat gun methods. With a little spray lubricant, both work well.
