Fairly typical of this series if the gas line goes behind the manifold and over the engine. Ethanol in the gas makes it boil at lower temps. Can help situation by running gas line around the engine in front works best. Use non ethanol gas. Will help the vapor locking if it pops and backfires when hot. Check comments in the archives.

First: Not typical.Second :Routing the fuel line around the front of the engine will do two things for you-make the line longer and subject it to more vibration. The as delivered fuel setup DOES NOT vapor lock!

GVSII; Personally, I don't believe in vapor lock and despite some hard work on hot days with ethanol gas neither of my old 4 cylinders have had this sort of problem. I do recognize however that ethanol gas has a lower boiling point so I don't dispute that some people under the right conditions could have the problem. Back in the day my uncle tried all kinds of cures to try to prevent gas from boiling in the tank of his 860 while chopping corn. I am not sure that your use of capitals really makes it impossible for vapor lock to happen.

Showcrop,I'm useing the same ethonal gas that most of the U.S. is useing-no vapor lock.Should any vapor form in the fuel line where is it going to go? It's not going to go DOWN to the carb.It's going to go UP to the fuel tank.The as delivered fuel set up does not vapor lock and never has. I don't dispute that some are haveing a problem but the problem isn't V/L.
