Hey, a heads up on those hoses....

When I removed them to do my timing chain, I shoved the hoses out of the way, behind the accelerator linkage, and the ends were hanging out of sight, at the rear of the engine. A few hours later, I smelled gas, and low and behold, a huge puddle below the car! I couldn't move it, as most of the front of the engine was apart. I wiped up this fire waiting to happen, and connected the lines to the fuel distributor, for lack of any better ideas. I had no plug or hose to stop the fuel from leaking from the hose. I pulled them off again when I was putting the valve cover back on.

Have fun!
