3/16 Copper Fuel Line Source?

Postby Fifty20ne » Wed Oct 10, 2018 3:50 pm

I am restoring a 1939 Evinrude Elto Ace single and need a some 3/16" (.190) O.D. copper fuel line.

Were kind I find a local source? Auto parts store or plumbing supply?


Thanks,


Bob

Hardware store could have it also.
Was pretty common to use it on Ice makers
but they have been going to plastic.
(Check behind your fridge)
When I got down to my last local source
I bought what they had left.

Hi Guys,

Thanks for all the help, I called AutoZone and they had it in stock, but price was high $48.99 for a 25 foot roll. OUCH!!!!
I ended up finding at my locale hardware store "Do It Best" for .85 cents a foot (bought 5 feet) with fittings.
Amazon looks to have the best price but I did not want to wait!

Refrigeration distributors are another place to check. Prices might be better too.

A lot of the copper tube being sold these days is so called "utility grade" and has thin walls and is easily kinked.
