Re: [DML] Video Of Carbureted PRV Intake Manifold Removal

Nonsense. That metal pipe is in there for one reason only: To
facilitate the assembly line process (locates a barb on the backside
of the already assembled engine). 

After the hard time you gave me about my single piece headliner,
relative to assembly line installation, I'm surprised you didn't know

It's very common practice to use metal tubes like that to facilitate
assembly line manufacture. The problem is that those metal tubes do
not last long beyond the warranty period. They get pinhole leaks, or
simply disintegrate altogether. 

I'll take a rubber hose any day.
