What is the correct fuel line size and material from tank to pump and pump to carb? My truck has 1/4” od steel to the pump and 3/8” od from pump to carb. Also I have plain brass male x compression fittings. Are these correct?

Not 100% sure on size but will say, I'd go with copper/nickel material once the size is determined.

I used the following lines from NAPA. Also available at Advance and Auto Zone.
Fuel Line From Pump to Carb 5/16" X 40"
Fuel Line Pump To Tank 5/16" X 60"
