      Well this fitting didn't work fuel line doesn't have a tight fit to the o-rings that are in fitting... guaranteed to leak 799-644113

      it is always close to the fork but if it moves freely your fine i have not needed to trim that area.
      Always trim the brace to fit leave all the materiel from bellhousing intact since we need it

      I will snap some pics of how I have it connected. I looped the lines together and primed the pump a few times, didn't see any leaks. I had to trim the upper plastic ring off so the fitting could slide on all the way.

      Thanks Hooty. I already trimmed that little black plastic piece off trying to get the Jegs fitting to fit. Russel fitting will be here Friday

      i just finished my setup the other night using the earls fittings that compress onto the plastic lines, but booty's is looking a lot more simple. nicely done. If my setup fails me when I test my system, I will surely go this route. its tighter than you realize in that stock wheel well/filter area.

      Brad, dont take this as a thread jack, but I wanted to ask: Have any of you put thought into deleting the canister near the filler neck back in this area? There is a 3 wire sensor that runs to it, and since we already have evap off, im wondering if anyone has successfully delete this as well. Not sure if its needed though to allow the tank to vent into the canister. I know very little about how it all works.

      Marc. I wish I had a reply to your question but I sent all the parts I bought from you to Arnold to have him build the head. Maybe if Arnold will chime in here and let both of us know




      And Devin I have not ever looked into that idea at all. I just left my white evap lines hanging down there with a couple bolts In it to plug them up. And I dont feel like its a thread jack, just people sharing ideas so its all good

      Sucks that other fitting didn't work. More money down the drain. I wonder how snug the 3/8 fitting will be?

      Power steering relocate all done.. Bought a 1/2" to 8AN weld on fitting but the 1/2" was a little too big to fit snug around power steering return line so drilled it out with a 15/32 drill bit



      now it sits nice and snug around the pipe so used Staybrite 8 and soldered it on.... We use this stuff sometimes in refrigeration piping, holds alot more pressure than my power steering will ever produce and same as heat...




      got it soldered on



      Installed my 8AN to 6AN reducer



      And final hookup



      Had to relocate my resevoir from previous pics as it got in the way of intercooler piping



      Now to finish my fuel lines

      Maybe If I can get a good tune I'll probably have Marc at Vap help me out with that so I don't have to bug Arnold

      Got my IC pipes cut and hacked and going to the Tig welder tomorrow, used some parts from CXRacing and cut apart Arnolds original IC piping I ordered a few years back with my kit..



      I'll get the WM bung welded on there also so I can use that this year... Also have him fix my intake pipe that has been broken for awhile so no more Zip Ties holding it in place

      I sold my AWW head to a guy locally that had bent valves and I asked him if he knew anyone in the area that TIG welded, and he said his neighbor does, the guy is retired but back when he worked full time he welded for a living... Now he does stuff out of his garage for some spending cash... Will post pics when it gets done, dropping it off tomorrow, not sure if he will get it done tomorrow or not...
