I wondered :? does using copper clipped to steel cause any electrolytic problems here :?: :arrow: Just thought I'd ask as they are in a position of getting constantly wet.

No there isnt a problem as the pipe is clipped in plastic clips and the pipe is well clear of the body so there is no physical contact between steel/copper. :)

Dont let them use brake pipe as it is tooo small you will get fuel starvation the fuel pipes on a BX are much bigger one is about 10mm and i think the other is about 8mm and brake pipe is a lot smaller.
