My cousin`s son came by with a cox.049 with fuel problems. The engine would not use all the fuel and quit. We took it apart and found out the internal feed tubing was too short. I have vinyl fuel tubing and decide to replace the tubing but as the line comes from the roll is curved but not enough. I came up with the idea of forming the vinyl tubing using a wire form and my monokote heat gun. I used a piece clothes hanger and bent with a tighter radius since when you take the vinyl tubing out it springs back a little. I heated the tubing with the gun and then I cooled it with water. It came out nice, I placed the internal spring and the installation on the backplate was a snap. Here are some pics.

I cut a little "Vee" at the one end that picks up the fuel. With it straight you may not get all the fuel either.
Years ago, I made some of my fuel pick ups from aluminum tubing. (was not easy)
