'mudgeon,

Please keep us updated!

I need to do something on my '63 T'Bird and this looks like it could be a winner!

Thanx,

Tom

This does seem to work! When I first park the car, you can smell some gas, probably from the carb. But it dissapates and no smell!
Looping the vent hose then installing a fuel filter on the end works for me!

You will get a bit when you first park the car from both the carb and exhaust - a non EFI car, unfortunately has these 'gas leaks'. This is especially true with an aluminum Edelbrock Performer carb, and somewhat worse without a phenolic spacer to shield it from the engine heat. But this system works
