ok, so i bought my girl a '55 ford with the stock 223 straight six with a three carb. setup and split exhaust that i did not install, the fuel delivery system is made up of metal tubing from about the frame all the way to the carbs, and brass fittings from home depot or something. one time at the hottest point of last summer the car acted as if it was out of gas, sputtering, then stalled and would not immediately restart. we determined it to be vapor lock. now, i remember when i was younger my father told me they used to wrap short lengths of wire around a fuel line with the ends sticking out to act as a heat sink. in my mind, that sounds like it would help, but damn that would look ugly! i already have a nice, OLD fuel distribution block that would look good mounted behind the long finned valve cover that's on this car. i wanna use it and run flexible hose to each carb from it. whew! my question is, how much would this help alleviate vapor lock, and if not much what else can i do to help other than move from the desert to a cooler climate? thank you. tred.
