I need a picture of the bracket at the front of the valve cover that holds on to the OE fuel lines. Which line clips into which clip? My specific application is a 1977 FJ40 but anything in the near vicinity should be the same.

I see both send and return lines in the bracket in the photos, and in the photos it looks like they are in the factory clip. My recollection is that the supply is on the top and the return is on the bottom. I doubt it matters which is on top or bottom.

Yep, thanks Tim. It's a little hard to see on my phone, but there is a clip on the side of the bracket and I'm not sure which line that is supposed to hold.

Jeff, you are probably right that it doesn't matter. I just need to do a little more pushing and pulling to get my fuel lines lined up right

I looked at mine and found that the return line was rubbing pretty significantly on the bypass hose for the radiator. There is a nice little divot on the hose...

So thanks for bringing this to my attention. :) I'm guessing mine is not set correctly, but I'm not sure why. There is plenty of "play" in that return line to move it back toward the head, but I had to zip tie it off to hold it away from the hose.
