I have my great grandfathers super w6. I am
having trouble finding a fuel line for it
because it is pre SN 3951. Can any one lend
some advice apart from making one myself?

You most likely wont find it, unless you get a used one that's all messed up anyways. Youd be money ahead just to make it, but one from a Super M may work.

be a 1953 model, but quite sure the farmall and mccormicks take a different line. , due to the tank outlet in a different position. nothing to make it. make sure you have the circle bend in it to prevent cracking.

Get the rubber fuel line for an M. YT sells them. I have one on my 1940 M. Excellent fit.

"...apart from making one myself"

Sorry, no. Nobody makes a fuel line for that tractor anymore. Just not enough demand for that specific model.

I've used "pre-made" fuel lines in the past, and my experience is that they need as much bending and trimming as a piece of straight 5/16" brake line.

Why so against making one yourself? It's not difficult.

Why would a Super W6 be different from a Super M? Same carburetor, same sediment bowl, aren't the fuel tanks also the same?

No, the location of the hole for the sediment bowl is in a different place on the tank, due to the belt pulley.

I'd caution you against a rubber fuel line. I used to would have said I agree, use rubber, but the pack-rats or whatever I have, have chewed mine all over the place, and filled the barn with gasoline. Pretty dangerous. I'd recommend going on line, you can buy a roll of 5/16 steel brake line, from ebay, you can cut the stuff with a sharp roller-plumbing cutter, and get fittings almost any NAPA store. Should be easy.

different outlet location , I was surprises to... put a W4 tank on my farmall H and wth the gas line was too short. figured the W6 and M had the same deal going on. little things like that to screw you around.

I agree with making one as it is very simple with some steel brake line and the compression fittings compatible with the brake line and f compatible with the fuel tank outlet and carburetor inlet. When I restored my Farmall 240 I got a couple straight sections of the correct size brake line, correct brass fittings and a simple hand tube bender to retain full inside diameter of the tube through the bends for proper fuel flow. I made a sample pattern with some solid copper wire and bent the steel tube to the pattern with the hand bender leaving a little excess on each end to be trimmed to length with a tube cutter when fitting the tube between the tank and carb. Got it perfect with the first attempt. I don't believe the tube bender I used cost more than $15 and have used it for other projects since. Rubber hose is not a safe alternative as noted in other responses as a neighbor's tractor burnt to the rims when a mouse nest caught fire under the hood next to a rubber fuel line from the heat of the exhaust manifold while making hay.

Reluctance to buy tools? Someone's going to be calling for your "man card." Just kidding around with ya...

Really, all you need is a hacksaw and a piece of sandpaper or a file to dress up the ends. Fancy tubing cutters and benders make the job easier but are not absolutely necessary. You can make the bends by hand if you're careful, or use an old v-belt pulley as a bending guide. Heck anything round, an old soup can even...

So I am going to make it myself. Assuming the size is 5/16 and what's this about putting a loop in the line?
