Subject:      fuel line replacement
Content-Type: multipart/alternative;

I thought I'd try my question a second time, with a little specificity:

I am about to replace many of the fuel lines and components of my high pressure fuel system (from fuel pump to engine). It appears fairly straightforward and logical, and I have Bentley's pictures, but not much text to guide me. I wondered if anyone has done this recently enough to offer any tips, cautions, etc., on removing and replacing the various components?

In particular: removing and cleaning the air intake manifold runners, and replacing their gaskets replacing the large diameter, short length rubber hoses on those runners replacing all the high pressure fuel lines cleaning out the intake air distributor removing and reseating the injectors with new gaskets

TIA, Jim Creech 87 Westy GL, 2.1
