Installing the 818 tank to rail and there's no way to get around this bracket with the line and the fittings they sent. Can I get rid of it ans shorten the throttle body bolts? I can't find any pics with the kit and an engine that has it.

If im thinking correctly that is used to hoist the engine on engine removal. If you end up removing it put it somewhere safe and label it for when you need it in the future. You could put in some thick washers to make up for the lost material of taking off the bracket.

If memory serves, you may need to remove that bracket (at least initially) to plumb everything in. It may be possible to put it back after everything is plumbed in (though you may have to remove some metal). Having said that, MANY guys have run without that bracket for many years with no ill effects. Though purists would say it does serve a function: presumably it helps support the throttle body / intake mani.

Thanks Paul! BTW that new return kit and sending unit kit went on great!

Always like to get feedback (both positive and negative) but, of course, we prefer positive. Glad it worked out.
