I purchased the fuel line from Just8N's. The tractor ran when I inherited it but the carb bowl had a small crack in it so I purchased a new one. I did not install the 12V system but I did install the electronic ignition just because I did not want to deal with the points system anymore. The fuel line was red hot from the carb all the way back to the fuel sediment bowl. I am not discounting the manifold leak issue just because cast iron can crack after 70 years of heat cycles.
