8/10 Vapor Lock was created by pneflyer
I purchased #42 8/10 and I am having a vapor lock problem. The car was idle for 20+ years. The gas tank was completely reconditioned with a new coating. I replaced the fuel pump and put new insulator spacers and gaskets between the carbs and the manifolds. The only thing left in my bag of tricks would be to reroute the fuel lines and insulate them. Short of putting a big propeller on the front to force air into the engine compartment, I am open to suggestions. Any thoughts?

Thanks,

Mitch

Ca you tell the forum what engine is in this car? I know of three possible engines. Ford, Chevy or Covair.

If I were you, I would post this question out on the AACA web site in the 'technical' forum' I would include pix of the engine as it sits in the car.

The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.
