Since hopefully this weekend I will put in the engine, I wanted to take care of something nagging at me in the back of my mind. I have read that the fuel return "t" rubber hose is prone to leaking. I hate working with gas tanks, lines etc once gas has been in them.

So since I have not put any fuel or brake fluid in the car I took out the front suspension and tank and replaced the rubber "t" with one I made out of brass and proper fuel line. I also not a fan of the small hose clamps, I am always between is it tight enough and oops its slipping. So I prefer the oetiker crimp clams, they seal much better and never have a leak.

Tom - Reading through this thread makes me feel better about you getting the Tulare 65. At least you know what a project looks like.

Seth, the 65 just from the pictures, doesn't even compare to what this project was.
