    I am weird about cutting off a factory crimped fuel hose clamp. My way to deal with them is to loosen barb fitting. then unscrew the part off the hose. Does not work on all parts. Does work on some.

    Lot of butyl to clean out. Looks like some acetone issues as well. Synch the throttle body cables, and throttle stop to the remote. Their still at factory or your mechanic has the merc thread goo. Low throttle body opening messes with tps and map signal and iat signals.

    But yea that fuel filter needed changed wow.
