Belmetric needs to give you a cut of the profit they've made after you posted that link Very Happy I ordered some as well.


Yeah, I bought some yesterday too.

Just glad I could help. I think the more this stuff gets sold the better chance it stays available in the market place.

I have been using mainly Gates hoses for over ten years since the fire (the braided hose going from the metal line to the fuel pump split open; make sure that the very short hose has some support on the metal line, as the short hoses are much less resilient and can be damaged by constant movement). I have used the 5/16th inch inner diameter hose, which fits a little loose, and the 1/4th inch inner diameter hose, which fits tight. I don't use the fuel injection hose because it has really stiffened up when it got older. The solid clamps that curve up on each side are a must.

Who supplies the solid clamps that curve up on each side?

I actually prefer the regular style clamps. These tend to become asymmetric when tightened, in my experience.

I just received 24 foot of the Flennor braided hose from Belmetric plus a big order of assorted metric wave washers, fender washers, normal metric washers and other fasteners for a future restoration about a week ago. I plan to replace all the 5mm fuel hose in 6 of my 8 old VWs over the next few months, as well as new fuel filters in each too. Looks ike a great provider of metric gear.
