Can I ask what in the video makes you say the lines are bad? All have new viton O-rings, and there was no fuel leaking outward. Yes, there might be a tiny vacuum leak that took the 3 months sitting idle to let some air in, but this thing was trouble free before taking the hit. Everything is wet now - I've had all the lines on and off multiple times trying to diagnose.

Now, how about the question I IM'd you about: How much pressure is the outlet banjo supposed to hold on the 606 pump? By it's design I don't see it holding any pressure; unless it's via the size of the hole restricting the flow. The spring is tiny and is easy to unseat blowing through it.

Thank you everyone!
