  This'n will date me.  In the '50s and '60s, it was not too uncommon to
see engines with a pair of clothespins spaced a few inches apart on the
fuel line between the pump and the carb.  I spoke to several guys who
had placed them there to cure vapor locking.  They swore that they did
the job!  Me, I don't know...(G), never tried them myself.
