Default Direction of Fuel outlet Nipple effecting flow rate?

Hi all

Just wondering if you have to line up the fuel outlet nipple so that the whole in the brass HSN flows directly into the outlet whole in the little round bulp that that fuel line connects onto.

or is it possible to just point the nipple in the direct that would work best for fuel line routing and then just tighten the HSN brass body up. Would the fuel just fill up the bulp then go out the outlet and would this be enough flow?

If i had full flow having all the wholes lined up then changed it so the wholes did not line up would it effect my tune because of a possible flow rate change?

I am trying hard to make sense

thanks!

You can rotate the fuel nipple in any direction without hurting anything. So just loosen it up, turn where you want it, and snug it back up. Don't overtighten though, especially on engines that the nipple (banjo fitting) is plastic.

The beauty of a banjo fitting is they will work when turned in any direction, like the guy above me said though, be very careful not to overtighten it once you've adjusted it where you like, the brass threads can very easily snap off in the carb and then you got a real problem!

thats good so the nipple can face in any direction. that makes the fuel line routing easier. i nknew it was a banjo fitting and how they work but was worried about effecting fuel flow and or fuel pressure...

cheers
