L79 327 in a chevelle beaumont does it have a 3/8 fuel line


Does a 1965 L79 chevelle or beaumont have a full 3/8 fuel line from the tank along the frame?

I can't prove it but I don't think there was ever a GM car with a Holley that had 5/16" line. The Nova L79 certainly was 3/8".

its for sure 5/16 from the fuel pump to the carb and thru the GF90 filter canister,  but i am just not sure of the main line from the tank?

Being an L79 and a 327 a person would think 3/8.

I just had a brainwave and went to the parts book. I've proven it is a 3/8" assuming the parts book is correct which I am quite sure it would be.

The fuel tank sending unit for all 65-67 Beaumonts with 327 and 396 engines is the same. And we know there was never a 5/16" line on a big block.

Now why they would do 5/16" pump to carb I have no idea...

 The pump outlet in picture #3 certainly looks like 5/16", I agree. It makes no sense though....
