Thanks NewOrleansFlyer, anytime
I'll admit I did cheat and used a very short piece of 1/4" flexible clear fuel line as an "adapter" to connect the copper line to the carb... I honestly meant to get back to it "later" and remove the carb fitting, then drill & tap to take a threaded one - but I never did manage to get around to it lol
...even tho it still annoys me a lil whenever I see it >.< Ah well, too many projects & all that jazz heh
edit: "Where did you get something like that?"
hardware/plumbing/refrigeration & air conditioning repair place outa have them, the fittings are pretty commonplace....
