I am going to replace the line and new filters on a 1964 JD 110 and a Cub Cadet 125. What size are the fuel lines? Thanks

Hose? Most are 1/4". But, the new fuel lines are sometimes that new material that is thinner than old fashioned rubber, and has no cloth strings in them. It is smaller outside and needs smaller clamps, depending on what you like to use. ME....I go to my Ace hardware and buy the good old fashioned tubing, rubber, string and thicker. If you use those flat squeeze clamps like they did in the days, your old ones may work. Smaller new line takes same type, just smaller. Sizes are found in diff colors. Use Black for the heavy line, and Green for the new type line. Clear as Mudd?

Standard on those machines was the 1/4'' Black rubber line with the braids woven inside, most L&G shops should sell it by the foot to you

If you cant find any local , I have a roll here you can buy by the foot.

I have a large roll of the black rubber hose I keep here, I switch all my clamps to the stainless screw type clamps, I have nothing good to say about the old spring type clamps.

1/4" and measured inside the tubing, so outside diameter doesn't matter.

I've been using 1/4"  Blue Tygon hose from the motorcycle shop down the road.It shrinks about an 1" per foot after a month but seems to hold up pretty good.Just make sure you leave it a little long if you use it.It does get discolored and stiff after a couple years but I have yet to have any go bad.

 

Bought a few feet of cheap braided gas line for my old push mower and the core collapsed after a couple months.It turned into what looked like Tar.Replaced it with Tygon line also.

 

I can get Tygon for 89 cents a foot just a couple miles from my house.That's the only reason I use it.

Will the wix 33001 fuel filter be a good filleted on a k301, k181 and k161?
