Default IHC 6HP M Fuel lines

Might anyone have a good photo of how the fuel and water lines should be run on a 6 hp M?

Thanks fellows for helping me with my 3 M truck.

At hundred pictures you see them all different in a certain way. I always use as example these views, but direct the discharge over the fuel fill pipe as can be seen in the picture. Hope it gives you any idea.

There is no water line on the 6 M. It feeds directly thru the mixer from the hopper. Most have a 1/4 line from the pump to the lower side of the mixer and a 3/8 line from the bottom of the mixer to the tee on the filler pipe. hope this wil help a little. Joe Morris

The IHC M engines did not use copper on the fuel lines, although that is what everyone uses to replace them. The originals were made of brass!
