    I don't know how true that is. However, there were crossover lines on 80's trucks with a single tank. In the 80's, the standard tank was on the left instead of the right where the fuel lines were.

    I still have the crossover lines from my '84 with single tank. If I were a bettin man, I'd say my lines match the new lines you were sent.

    I had a problem with them when I ordered the rear brake lines for my truck last year. I sent them photos of what my originals looked like. They sent me out new ones without having to return the incorrect ones.

    Here's what the lines look like on my '85 K30.

    Boy I don't know mine are different than that, what I ended up doing was going to local place and just having them bend the originals....I can tell by looking at that picture that my lines are different....the guy at line tube did say they used multiple companys to make these lines from the factory who knows!!
