Default Fuel return and vapor lines on tank

Do the lines that go around the tank to the frame lines come in the kits? The pictures I see do not look like they are included. 81 needs a new sender and tank esp those lines are rusty on the outside.

An install kit that comes with new fuel tank????

I doubt it....

My brother has a 73 Camaro. Bought a new tank 10-12 years ago. Tank only had the sender hole, thankfully. He had the tank sumped, like your Camaro. I had him buy a Robb MC 1/2" sending unit. I had him use the pickup tube as he return line on his system. Not sure how it all turned out. Started to help him on it, then we all had to stay home...

New tanks come "naked". Just a hole for a sender. Fine lines does have a vapor line for the tank but it lists the same one for Camaros and Firebirds, FFV7601. The 79 Camaro's line is different from the 81 TAs. I have to roll under the 78 TA and see how it looks.

When I was doing the body on my 78 Trans Am, I ordered a new fuel return line, vent line and fuel line from Summit. This was about 7 years ago? so, I cant recall exactly - but I am pretty sure the tank vent like did not include any line on the tank. The lines were from the Right Stuff. I had replaced my gas tank about 12? years ago and the lines on the tank were still in decent shape at that time.

The ones on the 81 are pretty rusty as you can see. The description of the return line sounds like it goes to the sender we'll see. No ship date from Fine Lines on either.

Got a second new SS tank Friday with the filler neck solder also cracked. The box has the whole neck out there so both have gotten tweaked. I think I'll just take it to a radiator shop to get resoldered.

The replacement lines are correct for the 81-and what my 78 looks like form underneath. They are different where the hose attaches but should still be OK. Not like the 79 Camaro one here.
