So, speaking of putting the carbs back on, what diameter is the hard  
fuel line?

and the routing is:

Along the passenger side of the floor held in by the doohickeys up to  
the front crossmember,

Across front crossmember from pass to driver's side

Back towards carb

.. and then what?  A special bend to get to the carb?  Several bends??

Thanks all,


.. no more mention of the Judson until after LotO
