    My hoses are in pretty good shape all in all, but if I fill up the tank and store the car (in a tight garage), it smells of gas for a week or two while things "settle." (I'm not sure why, but it...

    I saw that one, too, but didn't know if the "heavy duty" would throw things off. I'm all for cheaper options, though! :-) I'll be making my order tonight!

    Hello everyone, I've been tuning up my triple webers, and everything is about perfect.

    They're synched, the jets are right, they're all a nice even color, and it starts, runs, and drives well.
