    I got new fuel lines from Inline tube for the 65 polara, and the tube from gas tank to mid-frame was 3 inches too long. I sent pics and they told me their tech would look at it. After a lengthy wait I was contacted and told my tubing (according to the pics of the original I sent) matched that of a 65 fury. They asked me for my wheelbase, and I looked up online and then confirmed that it is indeed 121" after measuring. What is going on? Could anyone help provide the information these folks must need to get me the correct length tubing? I took these pics:

    Thanks,

    Joe

    First up Inline Tube are easy to work with.
    I show the 65 Polara having a 121" wb and the 65 Fury having a 119"

    Dodges and Chryslers were longer than the Plymouths so that would make sense.

    I suppose that means they actually created the one they sent to me 3 inches too long and it wouldn't fit any car.

    I had the same problem when I did the lines on my 300. They made me a new rear line without any question, and I had to pay the shipping on the new line. They work real hard at good customer service.

    Timely thread. Thanks.
    I'm doing the tank and lines on the Monaco in the fall.
    Fortunately Inlinetube is 7 miles from me.
