So I've had the regal for several years now, I'm finally getting motivated on putting it back together, it had a 350 in it when I bought it but motor was left with intake off and was junk. I pulled motor out and got new (used) goodwrench 350 for it

I'm putting the motor in this week but I want to change this first,

Should I just run a new rubber line like it was done previously, I could always change it later when motors installed.
Should I just replace said rubber line for now?

Run it the right way, the safe way. Chevy engines fuel lines ran along the passenger side frame rail rear to front.

I'll probably just get it running with new rubber line, then take it to shop n have them run new lines. They ran it like that by the looks of it..

Might need to loosen the frame side mounts just enough to allow some forced movement.

I'm gonna change those bell mounts to ones that were on original 350 they seem to look a bit different, looks like they had spacers on the mounts on new engine too. They new engine came out of a truck..
