It has a S bend ( if 1970 ) in the line that needs to be eliminated ,at the tank as mine had only 3/32" open with some calcium build up

Awesome. Here's a question, does anyone know how that valve should function in concept? It would seem it sends all the fuel to the rear carburetor until the needle valve closes and pressure rises a little, then diverts to fuel tank?
