A question for John

Postby Martinj » Tue Jul 21, 2020 10:15 pm

I bought a length of Tygon tube. The tube I’ve been sent is flexible & squashy as opposed to the rigid normal type of fuel pipe. Is this normal or have I got the wrong stuff?

Hi Martin, sorry for late reply...(see anything goes thread).

Tygon tube is quite soft compared to normal fuel tube.
It should be yellow/golden colour and have Tygon F-4040-A printed on it.

Thanks, John, having read your news on the anything goes, your reply is appreciated. It is that colour, I haven’t looked at the writing on it. I’m just a bit uncertain if it gets squashed & cuts off the fuel supply.

Tygon is very flexible and quite hard to kink, it will shape itself into a bend rather then fold.

How have you gone on with it,?

Sorry for the late reply (you know why, ;) ) I've just updated the other thread.
