Hey Chris, glad to hear you're back at it! That's great!

It sounds like your project is like mine - a series of highs and lows. To keep from going nuts I've really had to focus on savoring the small victories and achievements and not sweating the issues too much. I keep telling myself I'll be driving it in no time... :ROFL: :ROFL:

Regarding that fuel line cleaner you linked, I wonder if the aerosol can will have enough power to flush out your line. Perhaps you can try it and, if it doesn't work, hook the nozzle up to an air compressor. Your compressor should have a lot more power/volume and probably do a better job cleaning the line out. How does the exterior portion of the line look? Any significant corrosion of concern?

Lookin forward to seeing pics of your progress! :cheers:
Someday I'll finally be able to drive my Vette, but for now I'll just admire all the pieces... :willy:
