I have a newly purchased 1980 CT Trawler
issues. I have a weepy starboard tank (200 gal) that I intend to dry out and remove. the other two tanks
(especially aft) appear sound so I will clean those out and recoat the outside and replace senders etc. The copper fuel
line appears all original, is kinked in a couple of places, and is quite corroded on the outside. My question is whether to replace the copper with copper or to replace it with an appropriate synthetic fuel line. Secondly, if I replace it with copper, is this something beyond the skills of A DIY. I have run copper line on a diesel
tractor but am by no means accomplished and this is a lot of line with a lot of connections.
