Well, I did put a built V8 in My Mazda Miata... It fit with no problems.

I received an email from my dealer today that the "special order part" that I have ordered has come in. The only thing I am waiting for that I am aware of is my centerstand. It will be monday before I can get over there but keeping my fingers crossed.

Fuel line disconnected!!

Howdy,
has any of you encountered a situation with the fuel line coming detached from the tank??
I had a nasty surprise yesterday while entering a heavy traffic highway. First engine did stall and luckily I were clever enough not to try re-start it while roling instead I pulled of due to the traffic and did discover "something" draining on to the exhaust which then turned out to be fuel coming from the fuel pump..

I did notice that the fuel line was not "secured" so my fear is that while it was at the shop year ago due to the idle issues they never paid the attention to correct installation..

I haven't had or heard of that happening but noticed when I removed my tank that it would be very easy not to get the fuel line secured properly.

That would be my guess. I've had my tank off quite a few times and not had that problem in the 12K miles I covered.

Hopefully it's "only" poor maintenance rather than someone pulling a prank on me...

I've had a quick look at that and there's completely different brackets and mountings on it. However, I'm going to ask a friend of mine if I can unbolt the screen from his Explorer and offer it up to my Palmer brackets. He reckons the Explorer screen is the dogs nuts (and here's the qualification) for him.
