Re: [T3] Fuel Line Routing?

<x-flowed>I changed my mind again and fabricated the Bob Hoover
lamp parts bulkhead fitting. It was easy to solder
with a propane torch, and went in well. I had to keep
the protruding pipe short on the engine side to keep
it from getting bashed when removing the engine. I
used a longer tube on the body side to help the flex
line clear the z-bar. Bonus points to anyone who can
declare what is wrong with the z-bar.

As much as I would have liked to have the shut-off
valve on the engine side, the amount of extra potential
leak points in the engine area drove me to put it on
the body side. Upside is that I have a manual shut
off valve that I can use to disable the Sqbk when
parked in risky areas that can't be seen. Downside is
that more fuel will leak when disconnecting the fitting
to take out the engine.

I ended up finding a rubber electrical bushing with

With a short piece (just the width of the hose clamp)
of tubing on either side clamped in place, I have
a fitting that is flexible, yet won't rub against
any metal. I put another in-line shut-off valve
on the body side as well.
