After I finished the fuel lines, I started on the tranny lines. The first one is complete. Hopefully the second one will be complete today. A lot depends on how the weather is. Looks like more cold rain.

Got a late start. More shopping trips for paint and stuff.

Put the last bends in the supply line. Made the braided stainless line from the pump to the supply line. All the line mounting clamps are in place except for the one up at the front. Engine will have to be pulled to get that one in.

So, once that line mount is in place and the fuel filler and vent are finished, the fuel system is done. The lines will have to be flushed. I just hope it doesn't leak!

Well, HF replaced the tube bender - no probs.

Wednesday night I did get some tube work done. No photos. Weather report has changed and today looks promising. My wife doesn't want to go to the home and garden show. Time to get some work done. Photos later today.

Well, last night my wife took me shopping. No work on the hot rod.

Tonight was supposed to be the night. Cold and rain moving in. Probably won't get another chance until next Monday. But it was not to be. Neighbor's tree came down in the high winds, crashing into my daughter's swing set and busting up the guttering on the corner of the porch. Could have been worse. Now all I have to do is figure out how to get Adrian over here to split it for me. (Just kidding)

Not a great day. Broke the tubing bender. Made in China, but it does have a lifetime warranty. We will see how that works. Then I broke my 35 year old Blue Point flaring tool. I lost count of how many ruined starts I cut off the supply line before I got it right. As a result, the line is only about half done. Hopefully I can finish it tomorrow night.
