Default Safety wire on fittings

Matt
All my fuel tank fittings are wired. Do you reccomend safety wiring all the 4mm fittings on the fuel pump and solenoids? Do you just have the one shutoff valve between the solenoid and the engine?
Thanks!

Default Hi Cooper

I have had installations where I safety wired and others that I did not. I think the choice is yours. I would just say make sure you know what you are doing, and not cut the line with the safety wire (I am sure you know what you are doing but I kind of have to answer these questions for everyone else reading as well!)

I would never wire in the filter, as I like to take the whole filter out often to back flush.

As for the shutoff valve, I only run one.

One tip though. Be careful when removing the hoses from the solenoid valves. The nipples on those valves are actually glued in (come that way from PerkinElmer). If you pull too hard trying to get the hose off, you can pull the nipple out, or weaken in enough that it might come off under pressure.

My technique for removing the hoses is to very carefully cut the base of the line on the nipple, and then kind of tease it off. Be careful!!
