Default help keeping fuel line in tuned pipe.

I was out breaking in my new engine today on my new ntc3 and the pipe has a hole for you to slide the fuel line in. i did that and it came out when i was driving the car. I burnt my fingers trying to put it back in. Is there any way to hold this in there with something to keep it in? thanks.

You can buy a fuel pressure outlet and just screw or glue that sucker on...maybe even jb weld it if need be.

Or just get a real pipe.

I have only seen pipes that have a nipple that you slip the fuel line over.

If you have access to a selection of fuel lines you may be able to find one that has a larger outer diameter. I believe that the dubro fuel line comes in a thicker walled size that has a larger o.d. You may also be able use a longer length of hose and enter the pipe at more of an angle so it catchs better. I've seen this type of pipe on an MGT monster truck.

You did really this is the only pipe that works with the NTC3 because of the way the engine sits in the car your best bet would be to buy a nipple for it and jb weld it on!

what you do is stick the fuel line in tjhe pipe a couple mm it will have extra line in the pipe so it will stay in better or at least it will stay in for a longer time period hopes this helps

NitroMaxx there is nothing wrong with the car or the pipe, the hole is just way too big for any threaded nipple to fit it. you just need to buy a larger diameter fuel line, cut a small angle on the end of the line and work it into the hole using a small screwdriver. I have three NTC3s and used them to dominate two smaller club tracks in my area for 3 years, I never lost a quallifier or a main at one place and in the 3 years was only out quallified once and lost 3 mains at the other track. This car will run with anything out there on smaller club level tracks.
Good luck & good racing

And Mr. Epperson you made great food next to me at the last Winternats race, but your car repair advice stinks. See you at the Winternats shortly.

I have never ran a race car with a piece of fuel line just stuck in a hole.

The motors i have ran will blow any line out of a hole thus,changing the tuning on the motor,i have allways just screwed a small nipple into the pipe
and attach the fuel line to the nipple!

I dont see the problem with the repair advice?

The stab at the ntc3(ac) was just in fun,i try to add a little here and there
sorry if i steped out of line.

Cooking is my real gig, the race is the FUN.

See you soon
