Early Ford V-8 Club Forum

FORUM RULES: Users agree to these Rules when using Forum.

The site administrator reserves the right to change the terms and conditions of the user agreement without prior notice to the user. It is the responsibility of the user to regularly review the terms of this agreement.

The user agrees to the following terms:

  1. All information that you provide to us for your membership is correct.
  2. You will not use your membership to spam, harrass, or exploit other members in any way.
  3. Vulgar, Abusive, Racist and Sexist Language will not be tolerated.
  4. Commercial-type sales postings will not be allowed.
  5. No mass posting or flooding of the boards is allowed.
  6. No Advertising of parts or cars; no Ebay or business/commercial ads (please use the "Classified" for ads Wanted or For Sale).
  7. VIEWING MULTIPLE TOPICS ON SCREEN: You can choose to see more than 10 Topics at a time ... Log In and choose "Preferences" from the top bar on the Forum page. Scroll down and Change the "Default Topics Returned" parameter to 25 or 50, and save the changes. Since this setting is stored in your browser 'cookies' (if enabled), it seems to use that stored value even if you are not logged in. So, if you use a PC that you haven't logged into the forum from, the setting still seem to remain at the default.
  8. EXTERNAL PHOTO LINKS ON FORUM: You can still use external photo links in your posts on the new forum. They follow the rules of any link in that they have to have the URL link qualified down to the full image file name (example: .jpg). The links will open in a new browser window, the same as an uploaded image attached to a post. Since an image attachment to any post does not display inline with the post, the results are the same. You can use multiple external links within a post. This link is from photos on a site from Don Clink's 'Deuce@75' albums:


    Using links from photo sites such as Photobucket can help in "size" issue with uploaded attachment files. For best viewing in web browsers, photos should be around the 800x600 pixel range, and probably not more than 1024x768. Most cameras today store HUGE jpg image files, as the default settings are in the 7, 8, 10, and 12Mb image sizes. The image files that are then attached are very large, and the browser can't display the full image size without using the scroll bars. Use the re-sizing functions of your photo editing software to reduce the image to 800x600, which reduces the file sixe and the image load time in the browser. Don uses Google's free Picassa3 software, which is an excellent photo management product. All of the photo albums of the Deuce, Grand National, and Auburn that are links on the NORG site were built using Picassa's web creation functions. And it's free? (THANKS to Don Clink for the info!)
  9. HOW DO I SHOW MY EMAIL ADDRESS ALONG WITH MY USERNAME? You can LogIn on the Forum, and select PREFERENCES. On this page Members can add optional information such as their City,State, Country; Occupation; Hobbies: list a Homepage; list AOL Instant Messanger Handle; Signature; "Make Email Address viewable to others;" and even change the number of Default Topics shown on a page. WHEN others click on your profile, they will see this information.

According to the Ford chassis parts catalog 11A-9282 is the fuel line part number for all 8 cylinder passenger cars 41-48 and is 152.5" long.
It also shows 91A-2269 which is the part number for the brake pipe supplied in 25' rolls, I found this part number in the "cut to length" column on the fuel line chart. C&G's part number is 18-9282 which I could not locate in the Ford catalog, so it must be their part number.
The wheelbase is 118" and the fuel line was ran inside the frame so there should be no problem keeping it away from the exhaust.
TomO are you saying that the shorter line will not work?

I cannot say if the shorter line will not work on a 41 Mercury, but it will not work on the 40 Mercury if the line is routed correctly. The routing on the 39 Mercury is different and the shorter line may work there.

My 1942 chassis parts catalog gives a length of 136.5" for P/N 11A-9282. It states that this line is for all 41-42 vehicles. The post war catalog just gives the P/N for the 25' roll. The 36, 39, 40 catalogs give the P/N but no length.

According to the green Ford parts book the length should be as followes:
68-9282 replaced by 01A-9282 fits 36 thru 40 pass cars and is approx 139 in long. 11A-9282 fits 41 thru 48 and is approx 153 in long. C & G lists theirs as a 18-9282 which is to short for 41-48. Note the 41 Merk is the same as the Ford from the gas tank to the fire wall. Thus it take the 11A-9282 part which is longer. I had the same problem in 2002 while restoring my 41 Mercury and discussed this with several vendors. I finally bought two lines and spliced them together

Thanks for bringing the information in the Green book to my attention. I have been conditioned to use the year of manufacture catalogs for research as so much information in the Green Book is for service replacements and not necessarily accurate for any specific year.

Narraganset Reproductions still lists the 25 foot rolls of gas line in their catalog, if you would like to replace your spliced line with a one piece line.
