    Reinstalling my walbro - Question

    I have two questions, one is. What do you guys use to cut the "bell" that the FP goes into on the FP Assembly, right now I am using the stupid o-ring shit and I can never get it to seat right and when it does, it ends up coming undone and spraying fuel back into the tank.

    Second question is, if I dont cut the "bell" off to use hose clamps instead of the o-ring, How do you correctly install the FP with the o-ring? I must be doing something wrong. Tho is is my 3rd time pulling it in a year.

    Yeah I fixed my issue, it was that the o-ring moved out of place over time, so I just bought a dremel and cut the bell off the assembly and used a rubber fuel line and two hose clamps and it fired right up on the first crank.
