Well Sunday I finished replacing a fuel pump, some hoses and fittings. Once the engine turned over...poof, up come the flames. Now my iginition is fried, distributor cap, plug wires and my wiring harness are all scortched, not to mention the 2 fire extinguisher remains in the engine comp. I believe gas dumped through the vent tubes in the carb and ignited from the distributor or something. Now once i replace all this stuff. What should I do to prevent another tragedy? I did have the top to the filter cover off and it looks like its been scortched before because i have cleaned it. Could I be getting fire up though the intake up the carb?
