Question on Fuel?
The 460 was previously run with an electronic fuel pump and I have been told to run 1/2 inch fuel lines.

Here are some senarios:

1. use existing fuel tank with internal fuel pump and change regulator existing line.
2. Holey in-line fuel pump, and fuel cell/tank, 1/2 inch line.
3. Fuel Cell with internal electric pump, 1/2 inch line
4. Fuel Cell with mechanical fuel pump on motor.

Remember too, that I need to keep the cost down.

1. You would have to upgrade the pump, lines may not be large enough.
2. I like this idea the best.
3. $$$$$$$
4. Would work ok but I like elec. pumps
