Jim... yes, I neglected to include I too indeededly lengthened one of the 2 wires (the offending one that kept pulling the connector off and then incrementally shortening the wire) but w/ a butt splice and not solder, and I didn't bother to tape it either as I was tooooooo annoyed by that point.

It's up in the bellows of hell there so I don't think it'll pose any issue.

OH! More werserer... I couldn't get the front pump's outlet nut off, it loosened instead @ the seam at the pump not at the nut on top.

What's that translate into? It was torqueing one of the electrical posts into the fuel line braze... which... ended up snapping off the MF'ing post. ARGH. I have the pumps sold, to be delivered to a local guy tomorrow. Wicked cool! Not. Are those replaceable per chance???

Yeah Oil... really annoying stuff... it was an at least 87-swear job fersure. My kids kept coming out to the garage to see if I was OK b/c of the guttural screaming that ensued w/ each connector pull-off. FUCH ME IN THE GOATASS!

No apologies Jim, I remain beyond grateful for your tutelage here (as always)... 'twas just that yer install seemed utterly Ninjotic - and mine... seemed more... utterly... well... Me.

Did you have to do any tunage tweakage as Shannon wondered?

Ps. ohyeah... brakefluid is def up there w/ some of the nastiest nastiest stuff to get on yer skin. Brake Clean ain't much better. No thanks.
