Thanks for the thumbs up.
Some times it seems like a full time job. Definitely worth it to me though.

I'm at this stage right now on my rebuild. Can you please tell me what type and size of hoses and connectors those are? Also, where you got them?

Thanks, it looks great!

Mounted the lines on the motor mount for easy removal & they are far enough from the exhaust manifold.


Tank plumbed in. Ran vent line through the frame to the front/charcoal canister. Covered the S-Steel lines to prevent chaffing.

Drove it 8 miles down the road to get some 93 non-ethanol gas! It may just be placebo, but it certainly seems to run even smoother on the good stuff!
