As long as they didn't cut the main line.

Where fuel pump is. Fip union.
Flare fitting

5/16 brake line and make it fit.

If they did cut the line
It is a pain to flare. I did on mine. But its a pain.

For the carb. You will need an 1/8 pipe x 5/16 fip. Flare .


Inverted flares.....

You can get 5/16 NiCopp brake like in various lengths preferred with connections already, easy to bend, from Autozone or equivalent from NAPA etc., if that helps.

Another brand name for that type of alloy tubing is Cunifer. The ease of forming, bending and flaring makes it a delight to do tube fabrication.

Does anyone know where to get unions for 5/16? Also how you do seal the threads?

You don't have to seal them. You use inverted flare brake line fittings. 5/16 (1/2-20 inverted flare). Amazon, Summit Racing, NAPA, Autozone.
