Good to hear you're getting back in to flying shape. See you at the
I can't help with the carb cable safety as I run a Marvel-Schebler on
the 0-200. As for fuel lines I use 3/8" aluminum from tank to
gascolator and flex hose from there to the carb. Many types of
plastic(?)/ rubber/ flexable line are used in experimentals but aluminum
would be the most durable, in my opinion, and is used in
"certified-factory built aircraft". Basically, any hold down that
secures the line from movement or vibration and does not itself chafe or
damage the line is satisfactory. It's not rocket science. I used mostly
rubber padded "Adel" clamps where possible. Some plastic clamps go
brittle with age. Do not route electrical lines along or tied to fuel
lines. Some builders use a short section of hose with clamps for line
connections but I used flair fittings throughout. Consider the "failure
mode" at each point and do your best to eliminate it. Go with best
practice where possible. I've not had to touch my fuel system in 14
years and 680 hours so I must have done something right.
