I am wondering what size gas line my 41 9N has on it. It has an inline filter and the hose between the gas line and the filter is leaking a bit. Donm"t want to drain all of gas in tank and take apart till i have new gas line. Just wondering.

Your 9N should already have 3 screens in the fuel system, one inside the tank,
one in the top of the sediment bowl, and one in the elbow going into the carb.
There is no need for an inline filter, and it may cause problems.
The whole line can be replaced with steel brake line by just shutting off
the valve on the sediment bowl, no need to drain the tank.
If yours has been modified by a previous owner, which many have, post a pic
and someone will help you figure it all out.

1/4" steel brake line.... If you are running a inline with no issues that means you have a clean fuel system... if you have flow issues that means you have a contaminated fuel system that needs to be addressed ...

If you have a shut off turn the fuel off and repair the leak in the line no need to drain the tank... If you do not have a shut off you need one.... I would put it back original then if you have issues with stopping up OEM filters clean/line are replace the tank... Clean fuel is hard to beat filters are no filters..

The issue with in-lines is they are hundreds of times more efficient than a few screens if you have a dirty tank you will find your self walking allot... In-line are OEM are maintenance items clean are replace once a year....
