Default Fuel line size????

Just got a Fuji 43 for my 25% extra but im unsure of the size fuel line to use. Is 3/32 acceptable or do i need to go with the 5/32.

Thanks,
Josh

The smaller one will feed that carb much faster than the engine will use it. I hope this helps.

As long as you have proper backpressure, the inside diameter of the line just needs to be larger than the hole in the spraybar.

It's nice when they fit the nipple, too.

Yes, 3/32" will work. I have a Fuji BT-43EI - dandy engine. Don't go larger as most gasoline lines, especially Tygon, will get loose with fuel & heat.
