I can't easily find the grey opaque fuel lines for the inside of my 8HP Honda BF8A, that run from the fuel connector to the pump to the fuel filter to the carb. I will eventually be at a boat supply store to get the proper hose, but not now. It seems to be 3/16 ID. I want to replace it as the prev owner had it sitting for a few years, and want to make sure no varnish, dried rubber, etc. will cause me problems.
Is it safe to temporarily use the clear vinyl tubing from Home Depot to test the motor, in my basement "test tank" (aka garbage can full of water)? Could use of this cause any damage? The lines don't seem to touch any of the motor's block, where maybe heat would be an issue.
