    Default 83 Fuel Pickup/sending unit upgrade

    Changing my '83 over to 3/8 fuel line but wish to retain the original style sending unit for my gauge. Does anyone make a stock type sending unit/pickup that is upgraded to a 3/8 pickup tube rather than the 5/16"? Or another solution? InLine Tube sells the complete 3/8 fuel line for these cars so I feel like others have run into same issue. Seems like several manufactures make something similar for the 87 up cars, but not for the carburated cars.

    UPR sells one. -10AN feed fitting and -6AN return. Screw on barb fittings shouldn't be real expensive to make them the size you need.

    That is just a fuel pickup, no sending unit for the fuel gauge.

    If you don't have an EFI style tank, I think you're going to have to modify what you have now to get a larger size line.

    With an EFI style tank you could use the pickup I posted with the separate EFI style sender.
