I am looking to make up some fuel pipes for one of the lorries, I have plenty of Copper pipe left from doing the brakes so plan to use that.

I just need to find someone who can supply the right fittings for the AC fuel pump and the Solex carb.

Vintage Supplies will probably stock the fittings required:

You will need to know the fittings size on the carb & pump, and if making up compression fittings the pipe will clearly need to be the correct size for the fittings.

Never heard of Burlen before so have checked out the website and I have ordered from Vintagecarparts before so I am going to check the sizes when I next go down the yard before making any purchases.
