John
Great to hear about the job.
I have a lot of stuff I have to put on, so with these it will
just make it that much better.
I got most of the stuff you pointed out, with the
exception of the fuel line insulation. Any idea where
I can get it?
Thanks
Tony Tirone

Tony, please check your email.  Still working on the bar codes for the WA label. But let me know what you think.

The fuel line insulation foam can be purchased at heating and A/C wholesale distributors.  It has the same texture as the original when new.  It is made by Armstrong called AP/Armaflex.   I will get the correct size as I have one packed away.

I got the Armaflex.
It looks real big.
It's 3/8 inside and 3/8 wall thickness.
That's the smallest they make.
Is this the right stuff?
Thanks Tony

Tony,

That is the same as I have and is very very close to the original size.  Overall it is 1 inch in diameter.

hope this helps

It just looked huge, but I guess not.

I am still looking for pictures
of the charcoal canister install too.

Thanks Again

Have a great holiday.
And I will talk to you soon.

Thanks for the complement.
Yes, the car came from PA.
Do you know it? I don't know the guys name.
Ill fill you in on the story if you are interested.
I always wanted to know some history on it.
What's your name by the way?
Thanks Tony T.
