The first step is admitting you have a problem!

Hi Julius,

I just finished building my 733 and i got a small problem / concern.

I'm running Sirio engines and it is a REAL tight fit with the fuel tube between the carb and auluminium part where the upper plastic brace is attached.

I already ground a bit off that aluminium piece, but still, when I put an air filter on, the fuel tube gets pinched slightly.

I am concerned that the fuel tube will break under the vibrations and movements of the engine / car.

Which way are you guys running your fuel tube from the carb to the tank?
Around the INS box, between carb and engine or even around the back of the engine?

Thanks.

Btw, I just checked the pic you posted of one of your team drivers car and it seems to be the same thing.

How is supposed to get an airfilter on the carb without pinching that fuel tube?

We all run the fuel line the way you have it now. It is a tight fit, and possibly with the Siro carb beeing lower it may be worse.

One of our team drivers sent the attached image of his engine installation. However I guess when mounting a filter it may get a bit more tight....

I'd round off the edges of the alu bracket and check after the first runs if the fuel line shows signs of wear. Then you could always revert to running the line between the engine and carb.

With Siro you may run into difficulty with the pipe too. My suggestion would be to make a new gruscrew hole from the side and grind the front where the grubscrew normally sits for more clearance.

Good luck
Julius

Just ahead of me.....

Possibly rotating the carb a bit may help to get some extra clearance.
You are using the Siro motor mount right?

Hi Julius,

thx for the quick reply.
Yes I am running the Sirio engine mount and yes I have rotated the carb every possible way

I suppose a fuel tube with a thinner wall could help as well.
The one that comes in the kit is pretty chunky.
