ran into some vapor-lock on my td  after the hose between the carburetors
i cut off the end cleanly and resoldered iit into the fitting.  worked fine
but wasn't far enough from the manifold. didn't know until then why 
the big loop was there, smart sometimes those english.
tried 1/4 inch copper tubing. it worked but i worried about the copper
becoming work hard and cracking. so i purchased a store  hose and put it in..
it may not be your problem, but for the hell of it, try covering  the pipe
the carbs with something to insulate it from the heat of the manifold.
the electric fuel pump generally eliminates all but extreme cases of
how hot is it under the hood ??  can the carbs getting hot enough to
percolate ??


ps you all... i love aol, always have .... always will
