    Okay, having a bit of a lapse here, does anyone know whether the fittings on the braided steel fuel lines off the back of the TBI are flange style fittings or O-ring style? I am talking about the end away from the motor.

    Also, the air cleaner stud was missing when I got the engine and I found it today laying on the intake under the cruise control module. It has been broken off. It's been awhile since I have messed with a TBI, so where does this thread into the TBI, is it right in front of and between the injectors?

    Thanks for all your help with my stupid questions.

    Great, thanks for the help, now I just need to find a new air cleaner stud. No junkyards around me have anything. most of them don't keep anything older than a 95 in the yard, but still no TBI engines around /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    Post up in the "Wanted" forum. Someone's probably got one they can throw in an envelope for you. /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    I've got a friend I need to call tomorrow to see if he has one, if not I might post up later tomorrow.
    I'd like to get it this week so I can wheel this weekend. /forums/images/graemlins/woot.gif

    I bought one from checkers, but they are straight so I had to heat it up and bend it to the right angles. Pretty easy, all you need is a vice and a cheap torch. I did it b/c of my CFM air intake enhancer made my old one worthless. PM me and you can have my old one for free /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif
