If one wanted to replace the metal fuel line from front to back, what would be the best way of going about it?  Cooper line with a cheap flare and bending kit?
Or just a very long braided fuel hose?

Reason:  My fuel return pipe is 6mm, but all the other fittings seems to be a bit bigger and it's causing issues.

Alternatively block off the fuel return?

Perhaps i just need to give the return pipe by the fuel filler and jolly good clean?
pretty sure its 8mm though.

Also haynes says there should be a non return valve on the return fuel line. Is this correct? I have one.

I used copper gas pipe as it has a larger bore than the brake pipe, get the ends flared slightly to help the rubber pipe seal and also to stop it coming off.  Hope this helps.
