    I'm thinking of hooking up a return line on my '56 Chevy to help with vapor lock/hot start issues before the Texas summer hits hard (it's running a mechanical fuel pump). I'm going to try a 1/2" phenolic spacer first and insulate/reroute the fuel lines to see how that works -- the carb/fuel line is getting too hot after a long run and the fuel line can be routed better. It's a problem that's already rearing its ugly head. I searched this board and the Wix 33041 filter was recommended. I need it to have an orifice. Apparently Wix 33041 is unobtanium from every supplier I've found -- bummer as I prefer Wix products.

    Is there another part # someone can provide that functions the same as the Wix 33041? I'd like to tackle this problem soon.

    I appreciate that, but I'm looking for one that accepts 3/8" line w/ the orifice. I think that one's 5/16" on the inlet/outlet.

    F1ford.. you don’t saw what style intake you have or it’s material. If it has a carb heat crossover you can restrict it also. If not a 3/8” phenolic carb spacer really helps or has for me with every engine I run..
