    Thanks, i though it was funny. it back fired bad. the fire got worse and my buddy turned off the camera.. the line from the pump to the carb was leaking through the line itself. i ordered some new -8 braided line and new fittings. thats what you get using 1943 lines. the real reason was my starting procedure. i got carried away with the the throttle like it was a holley 4bbl, the accelerator pump was working over time. no damage was done. ill post a new video next week after the rest of the parts show up.

    Wow hope the garage is still standing! Looked like it went up in flames there. Fun stuff.
