Two conclusions that I draw from Loki's experiences:

- Although the instructions that come with the silver top Facet tell you to mount it vertically, it looks like Loki mounted his horizontally and it worked OK (did I understand that correctly?). There is a filter and clean-out at one end of the pump, which is the biggest reason I can see for vertical mounting: that puts the clean-out at the bottom so gravity traps any debris there.

- My experience with Spica conversion agrees with Loki - those O-ring carb mounts just don't seal very well. Going to a factory carburetor manifold eliminates those seals and also provides more elegant throttle linkage.

Loki: Thanks for the post mortem. I wish more people would conclude threads that way.
