What you actually did was to effectively lean out your engine... The reason for your engine stalling was because you probably ran too rich at the low end needle.

Im2lazy: I still can't get it right. Are you trying to say that the fuel line and the pressure line shall be of the same length? Preferably under 6 inches for both???

It is what I prefer. If I have to go over six, I try to find a way to keep my lines short. But in general, five to six inches is ideal for a starting point. If you have to make your pressure line really long, then your pressure nipple from the pipe might not be in a place where pressure is consistent.

Everything is different, but all my cars have lines that are within this length range, so it definitely works for me. (even if the rest of the car doesn't )
