El Regulator

Finally today I was able to put the finishing touches on the fuel system by installing the by-pass regulator and then finish installing the fuel and return lines. The main purpose of have a recirculating fuel line is to help eliminate vapor lock which is a common occurrence on cars running the La Carrera Panamericana. Keep the fuel moving so it never sits near a hot exhaust or engine and it stays cooler thus eliminating vapor lock. Regarding the fuel system, all that's left is to hook up the wiring for the fuel pressure switch to the fuel pressure gauge then all I need to do is put some petrol in the tank and check for leaks and set the fuel pressure regulator.

Later in the day I found some time to install the new rear-end and posi. All that's left for the rear-end is to install new seals and the axles and the trick Wilwood rear disk brakes. Then it will be time to bleed the brakes and check for leaks.
