You would use the kit for the methanol pump or regulator, depending on which one you are referring to.

I suggested the E85 hose because it holds up better to the ethanol blended gasoline made today. PTFE holds up even better, but requires specific hose ends and costs more.

I have switched all my regulator diaphragms over to GFLT versions to extend service life. As soon as I use up my current supply of carburetor accelerator pump diaphragms, I will be switching them as well (I typically replace them every year).

Doing more with less, or something like that.

Thanks for clarifying.  You're not joking about the diaphragms on the accelerator pumps.  Couldn't figure out why my car ran like garbage one day and it turned out the accelerator pump diaphragms were hard as a rock.  Now have the light green ones.  The additional alcohol in today's fuel screws with small carbureted engines (pressure washers and generators in my experience) as well.
