Re: [T3] Vapor Lock?

I checked mine out yesterday first thing in the morning. 2.5k ohms air temp
sensor was 320 ohms. While measuring the head temp sensor I noticed that I
was getting an intermittant reading. I thought perhaps the sensor wire was
broken at first, then I noticed that the head temp sensor had come loose and
was making a very poor contact to the head (electrically). I pulled the
sensor out all the way, and measured across the sensor.

I also adjusted the valves and changed the oil, something I dont like
though, all the exhaust valves were again tight. Last time I adjusted the
valves, #4 and #2 were tight, the time before that #1 and #3 were tight.
This time all 4 were tight, and I mean tight as in less than "free zero".

One other thing....I was digging around the fuel system (changing the
filter). I noticed something in the fuel lines, that I didn't find any
mention of in the Bentley. The output(middle connection?) of the pump is
connected to a small, round can. The can is say 1/2" thick, it then is
connected to the hard line in the tunnel. The input and output on this can
are 180 degrees out.

Anyone know what this is?
