Hi Radek. On my 87 5kq the fuel lines are 5/16 o.d. Pretty much
standard. Same size as copper oil furnace lines BTW :) If you're on
the cheap you can use that and go with compression fittings or high
pressure fuel hose 5/16 i.d. and clamps to fit it all together. If
you're not on the cheap, the dealer will happily supply. You'll really
wish you had a lift for this bit of work, but it can be done on your
back :)

Best regards,
