I'm looking to replace the fuel and brake lines on my Regal. It looks like the two biggest vendors of pre bent lines are classic tube and and inline tube. Anyone have experience with one or the other? Also my Buick engine has the fuel pump on the driver's side, is that going to be an issue because I know Olds and Chevy engines have the fuel pump on the opposite side.

All the in line tube stuff I bought always needed tweaking

It was never "right"

Just got done installing inline tubes front power disc brake conversion kit on my buddys 1965 LeMans he was still using the 4 wheel drum w/single (suicide) master cylinder. I thought it was a great kit and we did all new lines I think the kit should of came with a new rear hose at the axle but whatever other than that was easy and nice kit

I assume there is there a reason?

Back in the days of early web design, theirs really sucked. When I clicked on the item, it didn't line up with the correct year, so I received a slightly different kit than what I thought I had ordered. Only 2 pieces were off, the m/c to prop valve. I had already installed the rest of the kit, and the individual pieces had part numbers. They wouldn't even sell me 2 correct parts, and insisted that I return the entire brake line kit. I bought a Right Stuff kit and used the other one as parts over the years.

Joe, I'll have to look the next time I'm at the storage, but I think everything I've bought was Classic Tube.

Looks like classic tube may be the way to go. I really just don't feel like fabbing lines myself again. My only concern is still that the fuel pump is on the driver's side. I don't want the lines to be plumbed to the wrong side.

Get lines for a V6 regal. Or a carbureted Turbo car. All you will need to make yourself is a pump to carb line if you can't find/use either of yours. I chopped mine in half and put a regulator inline due to me needing a spacer for linkage to clear. Same with an aftermarket intake.
