[DML] Re: Leaking fuel line in Distributor

You should inspect the other lines as well. You've been in there 
doing a lot of work, taking lines off and putting them back on 
again. Every time you disturb them you run the risk of weakening 
them because of their age.

A fuel line that ruptures while you're driving will quickly make you 
look like your flux capacitor is about to light off as you cruise 
down the highway in flames.

Take no chances. I've almost done it myself. Twice.
