Alright... so... that didn't work out too well for me. Today I got home and smelled a lot of gas after exiting the vehicle. With my arms full, I walked past the rear and noticed a long path of gas on the road... dangit. After relieving my arms, I went back out and popped the hood only to find gasoline dribbling (at not a very slow pace) out of the silver air filter that I installed the other day.
I then ran over to the gas cap and purged the system, releasing a bunch (if not more than before) of built up pressure. And the dripping gas stopped under the hood. So, it seems that that line is connected to a low spot in the tank, otherwise, it wouldn't have pushed gas up and out.
Next, I moved crossed (uncrossed) the lines, attaching the air filter to the line that comes through the firewall directly under the supply line and I routed the top of the fuel filter to where the air filter was located (to the left of the brake booster).
I guess we'll watch it and see what happens. Not too sure how optimistic I am, as this is pretty much the same setup I had before, only with the extra parts removed... though now there is no return directly at the carb. Wish me luck.
