Quick question for ya about the fuel lines in this picture:



Did you have any others ones, or are the ones on the drivers side of the engine the only two you had? Did they both hook up to that side?

Only reason why I ask is because I just put my Ranger back together and one of my fuel lines went to the other side of the engine. Just making sure I didn't miss a fuel line or something, lol.

well after a generous portion of aircraft remover I let it sit over night . Today I grabed my grinder with a wire wheel on it and went over the cab.. most of the paint came off with little effort.

Went ahead and tore my intake off just now. No other fuel connection on the drivers side, so I got it in the right spot. Glad I checked anyway
