Here I will illustrate on how to plum and line fuel supply lines. This diagram can be used with any of the Revell-Monogram Funny Car and Dragster kits out on the market. It also may apply to any other car kits you build that have a blower system added on.
Here is the basic running of the fuel supply lines.

These two photos show what parts from the drawing are used from the kit. The Revell-Monogram Funny Car / Dragster kits share the same engine.
Making fuel lines cheap and easy. There are two types of lines that are used, braided and solid. Again you can buy aftermarket braided lines. One of the easiest ways to make them is to roll a fine sharp file over the soldering wire. To get the chris cross pattern you’ll have to roll in both directions.

The Earl’s fitting, those are the Blue and Red fittings attached at the end of supply lines and can be made from plastic hex rod, or can be bought aftermarket from many of the on-line car modeling sites. You can find them in metal or resin. With the metal the hole is already drilled through it, where the resin you’ll have to drill the hole yourself.
I used them both, but after awhile they become expensive. So I started using plastic hex rod. For two dollars you’ll have a life time supply. Just cut your size, drill your hole and fill in with soldering wire.
For the Main and Return supply lines, use .22 gauge solder, and for the smaller supply lines use 28 gauge wire. Most of the products can be bought at any local hobby shop or crafts store.
