If its hard against the mount (but still fitting) then could you take/grind some off the mount then make the "flexi" a straight piece of pipe to remove the extra diameter of the concertina?

unfortunantly the part i would need to grind away would include some of the rubber so that is a no go. whish I could tho!!! As for the removal of the flexi, I assume its there to allow expansion of the manfilds as they are two piece etc, so although I did think that and still consider it an option, it may result in cracked exhasut pipe maybe?

Could you dent the flexi inwards a touch?

By dent do you mean hit it with a hammer until it fits sweet?

Dumb question but not run a VL external pump?

Fuel surge is the answer to that Champ

How so??

Also those connections - are they designed to be inside a fuel tank? Just thinking about the connection sparking..

running external fuel pump on a carb tank, with no baffling, would cause fuel surge, although everyone says oh just keep your wgaon tank a third full or whatever, when your on an extended wagon trip, this is not ideal.

that was designed for a fuel tank yes.

haha, also you had me worried there for a tick, but as I will have both the connectors isolated from the tank, and atleast a few centermeters apart, I can see any spark issues happening, guess will see,

if I get shot down in a blaze of glory we will know why haha

I could, but I had this disscusstion with a few people. Not really keen to spend the money on such a system. Dont worry, I have a plan

As for lowering the tank, its already the lowest part of the car haha

And I like my cars LOW
