1/2" ports and line


3/4" ports to #8


3/4" ports to 3/4 lines


1" ports and all the expesive fittings just a waist
This is all for single pump.

Or you like the 1" ports

I have seen folks running 3/4 and 1" ports to the nose reduced to 1/2 in the engine compartment from single to double pumps but you tell me what do you prefer and why?

I used to run 1/2 blocks and and fittings with 1 pump to the nose of my Fleetwood and it got up alright, But about 2 months before I sold the setup I switched to 3/4" block, check valves, fittings and 1/2" hoses and the snapped up a hell of a lot quicker.

I'm putting a whole new setup and I'm gonna put 2 pumps to the front, but only use 1/2" and 3/8 fittings.

what you think would be better for single. from 1/2 port and fittings to a y block in the trunk. and the question is would #6 lines be better to use off the y block or #8?

use a 1 inch steel prohopper LA series block and 1 inch port and have a 1 inch checkvalve and when it comes to the y block reduce it to 1/2 inch worked great for me about a foot and a half first hit in a monte with 6 batteries
