              • Because of working on customers cars I don't have a lot of time to work on my projects but we have gotten a few things done.

                My son Brian, Steve Baur (former Modified Mustangs & Fords editor) and Buddy installing a Ron Morris EFI fuel pump and lines for a story that was featured in the magazine.

                • Worm clamps on Fuel Injection hoses? I have been under the impression that that is a strict no-no because of the pressure in the lines.

                  • Not on that section of line, that's the feed into the pump from the tank, no pressure in there at all, the pump sucks from the tank then pressure out the othe side.

                      The hose and hose clamps came with the kit.

                        My 86 Vette has worm gear clamps on it, never had a problem. About 45 psi.

                        • The fuel lines and filter are attached to the subframe connector





                          They go through the torque box and into the engine compartment

                          • I forgot to show this but awhile back Mark Houlahan came by the shop to help us install the Ron Francis wiring harness for the SOHC Mod motor.





                            We are not finished under the hood



                            Brian was helping Mark

                            • Takes a lot of wires to run a modern engine





                              Every wire is numbered so you can't make a mistake if you hook it up to the same number on the control panel that is plugged into the stock Ford computer.
