Screamintrashcan is on a distinguished road

Make sure that those rubber tubes aren't chafing against the edge of the sheetmetal, if they are, it won't take long for them to be cut and spray atf#4 all over the place, with the associated smoke. If they are, or within 1/4", go to an auto parts store, pick up a bag of zipties and 6 " of 1/2 " heater hose and cut it in two and slice them, stick em around the chafe areas, and stick a ziptie around the 'bandage' to protect the pressurized hose. cheap insurance... People who install that stuff don't usually understand the science of vibration and chafing... Get the gauge, and good luck!!!
