Brief Description: New fuel line and throttle cable
1. With the carb back in place I installed the new fuel line. It has fire sleeve around it, but I thought I heard some "burps" when I did my first take-off attempt (aborted that day for other reasons). So this time I also put heat shield tape around the fuel line and fuel filter (photo 1). It seems to work, since I've had no burps.
2. Photo 2 is the new throttle cable (black) curving from the firewall to the carb. This works MUCH better than the original.
3. The only RTV I have used around the engine/baffles is here where the baffle meets the top of the engine block. Guess what? "Red" RTV is actually a perfect match for Chevy engine orange!
