Is there a good radiator repair shop in your area? They can usually braze it for you pretty cheap if so.

I have a sort of brazing rods like that, with a little practise you can do the job too

It would cost me more to buy the required tools than to have a shop do this quick...

Only the welding sticks you need, but quickest way would be let do it indeed.

I found a welding shop to do the pickup tube for $20, so I'm all set :)

Meanwhile I'm waiting for my cylinder heads to get fixed up at the engine shop, I started working on getting stuff ready...

I also rebuild the master cylinder and some other brake bits and installed them:

Any advise on how I should route the fuel system?

Just got back my modified pickup-tube from Lewis Welding Works (In Roseville). They did an awesome job matching up the pickup tube from the 1400 to the 1100 so I can use the 1100 pan

If anyone ever needs anything welded in the Sacramento area, this is the place to do it! They do all sorts of crazy stuff, even those half-length VW busses! Awesome old hot rod chassis in the shop getting worked on too. Good stuff.

Alright, here in lies my confusion with the fuel system...

The service manual doesn't show this exact car for some reason. The sedan model shows only one little evap reservoir, while the wagon shows 2 like this coupe, but it doesn't show the same routing. I have no idea what these even do anyway, so I'm curious what I should do with them.

Also the fuel tank has two tube connections for the evap/whatever. So I obviously have to run two lines to it somehow. I thought maybe use one as a return line?

Image

Also, the white double-tube plastic thing in the fuel cap area appears to be missing parts! When I cleaned it up, all it had was a spring inside but nothing holding it down???

Image

I did manage to route the line from the tank to the fuel pump and put a temporary break-in filter there. Everything look fine to you guys?

Yes sir.

To be perfectly honest, I prefer to do away with as much of that evap stuff as possible. :P

Do you just ditch it all and plug everything up?

That part with the spring with missing parts may be a one way valve to only allow fuel vapour to travel in one direction.

You wouldnt want fuel vapour travelling from the fuel tank the opposite way to fuel travel. That would be my educated guess.

I basically turned it into a vent. Everyone says thats not a problem... I hope.

Anyway, my crown jewel is ready to go, just waiting on cylinder heads to come back from the shop :mrgreen:

That Weber manifold is a beauty. I still can't believe how immaculate this whole build is. Klingelhofer & Co. over at Super Street would do well to feature you in a "Back In the Day" segment. I know he posts here from time to time.

Thanks. I'll have to look him up when I'm done :)
