Hi folks -- quick one here about fuel lines. Book says 7mm x 14mm. I
can only find 8mm x 14mm hereabouts. Will that work? Seems pretty finicky to fuss over the difference but I've been stung by mucking around with fluid dynamics -- something I do not understand -- many times before.

FWIW I have an SI carb with the float chamber hole drilled out. And a SIP faster flow 2.0 tap.

I use 5/16" (7.9375mm). Seems to deliver plenty of fuel with BGM fast flow taps. I think you'll be fine with 8mm.

Its impossible to find a 7mm inner diameter fuel hose. At least for me.

The 8mm is too loose and might leak, I use the 6mm.
