seeking picture of correct 1911 Torpedo fuel line routing

Post by Scott_Conger » Sun Jun 02, 2019 8:59 pm

I have never seen a diagram or picture of the correct routing. An early post by John Ragan hints at the oddity and discusses the unique shut off valve as well. I would be ever so grateful if someone with a Torpedo could provide a sketch, picture or good verbal description of the line, it's routing, and rotational position of the sediment bulb (I believe the outlet is NOT directly foreward).

I have copies of pictures/diagrams for touring, sedan, coupe, runabout. None of these are correct for a Torpedo.

Thank you in advance for any info you can provide.

Trent Boggess had a diagram on his webpage years ago.
I will see if I can locate that for you or perhaps Trent will chime in here to help.
