fuel line and electrical ground

Hi there

I have my return fuel line (hard line) touching the metal strap from the engine to the engine mount (bypassing the rubber engine mount). I assume the metal strap is to provide another ground for the engine. Is having the hard fuel line touch this ground a bad idea?

thanks
patrick

Re: fuel line and electrical ground

it is fine. as long as it is well grounded(the ground strap) and is not near a joint in the line. But that is a long shot.

It'll be fine, except for the issue with rubbing a hole in the line. but, I'm sure you got that covered. [img]images/graemlins/burnout.gif[/img]
