    Installing A 770 Holley In A 1979 Chevy Camaro - CHP Garage

    Check out our readers requests, featuring a 1979 Chevy Camaro that caught fire when installing a 770 Holley and much more!Backyard Follies: Fire!
    Guys, the term "backyard follies" is great ("Letters," CHP Garage, Apr. '09)! You should make a recurring feature out of it. My own experience came when I was installing a new 770 Holley on my 79 Camaro. No big deal, I've done it all before, right? Not really. Got it all bolted down and the linkage connected and went to install the fuel line. Since I hadn't ordered a fuel line yet, I just used the tee connector, the fuel bowl nipples, and the rubber hose Holley includes with the carb. I must have had a major brain cramp, because even though I got all the hose clamps snugged down just fine, I left the fuel bowl nipples only finger-tight. Naturally, when I twisted the key it only took a blink of an eye for fuel to spray out and another blink for a huge yellow flame to erupt from under the hood.
