    It sure must be a coincidence that they sell thousands of fuel pump insulators for a problem that doesn't exist. Sorry I called you an asshole, you are correct Rick.

You changed the fittings in the tank, the pickup location, the line between the pump and the tank, and re-routed the line to the carb. To prove root cause you change ONE thing at a time. To "shotgun" the problem and just fix it, you can change everything you want to.

    The video showed a similar problem as yours. But again they changed a bunch of things to fix it.
    I don't know where you came up with that. I didn't change any fittings at the tank. I cut into the existing fuel line and installed the pump, then bypassed the mechanical pump. But like I told Rick, you are probably right, they sell thousands of fuel pump insulators because people think they look cool, not due to boiling fuel. You are correct.
