I think what I'm going to try next is a insulator / spacer between the carb and the compressor housing. Maybe that will lessen some of the heat transfer.I ordered 2 of the fiero ones Johnson suggested. $6 apiece what the heck.

Ran a short AN6 braided fuel line from the regulator to the

Got my cross shaft clamp today. Was able to rig up some linkage, actually looks pretty clean. Was able to use my original swivel by adding an extension temporarily. Will need to get a longer one though. Took her for a short ride (raining), wow nice difference. Nice thing is it doesn't run like crap after I shut it off and then start it again...
