    I did indeed get the new washers yesterday. Thank you very much. I added 2 to the passenger side mount and now there's clearance between the rack and oil pan! Probably make the driver's side the same after I get this beast running.

    It's fighting me at every turn. Yesterday I had to remove every Earl's straight AN fitting (4 total) and replace them with Russel brand. After spending 45 minutes trying to get one of those fittings to properly cut into the Teflon tubing, I finally decided that I don't trust the engineering behind these when used with an inner hose (braided stainless exterior) that was too hard/slippery to slice axially with their "cutter" ring (it's just a sharp edge soft aluminum ring, no serration.) Glad Pep Boys sells these fittings and they currently have a 30% discount on many items which made them the same price as online (Summit.) This was one problem of several causing me to fritter my time away, though I could only work so hard with 100 degree "real feel" soupy air. Oh, well. At least it wasn't snowing.
