Re: DON'T use Russell quick connect fittings!!!!
These are the fitting I used on my first swap, drove it 6000 miles and one never failed....but on the bad side I now have a total of 4 of these fitting where I only had two on the last truck. We also used 3 or these on a vette filter setup on the Silverado and it has 2 Walbro 255 and has not blown a hose yet.
Not to point fingers but I have noticed it is easy to put one of these on and not make the white tabs "lock" in place. I always push them on as hard as possible and then push the tabs to make sure they lock and then pull on the fitting as hard as I can to make sure it doesn't come off. Hope these dont become a problem tho, makes me a little worried.
