nhra rulebook regarding fuel lines.

I'm not running braided lines, i'm running aeroquip socketless woven fuel lines, front to back

NHRA (2002) rulebook states this is an approved line, as does eric from mopac.

Then rulebook states no more than 12" can be non metal/steel braided,

then it says that any line that isn't steel braided must have a 18" pipe surrounding it while passing the flywheel/flexplate...

So is it saying I wasted $300 on fuel lines ? or is it saying that the areoquip socketless is approved and therefor can replace steel braided line ? or what.

is the 2003 rulebook any different ?

I told you last year that any fuel line within a 12 inchs of the Flexplate area has to be surrounded by a steel pipe. The line you have is legal but it has to be covered by a steel pipe around the flexplate.

Thanks guys, I search for an answer for quite some time on here. This is the best post I could find but no answer, that is why I TTT. I was asking around locally here and I got both responses. So I was under the impression that if you had a Hi-pressure(EFI) system you had to go braided or solid. If you had gravity feed to the engine(carb) you could get by with the rubber. Thanx again for the input, I'll save a few bucks there running the black 250 psi hose from a local parts store for about $2.50/foot.

I fianlly got someone from the local track to find some info. They list the approved woven hoses;
Gates lol lyles????
Aeroquip
300
322
200
I am sure there are more but I knew I could get the 332 at a hydraulic hose repair company here locally, they said about $3 a foot. They have the braided too but it was special order, didn't even get a price on that.
