Just in case the fuel line broke after the fire started, be sure to replace the power steering lines which are notorious causes of underhood fires. Happened to me once. Never leave home without a fire extinguisher after that incident many years ago. Lucky I'd had one in my trunk at that time too. Never leave home without it.

Thanks Boss,

I'll be removing the lines next weekend and giving them a good inspection/replacement. I don't think they started this one beacuse most everything down there looked pretty clean.


The A/T fluid ignites pretty easily on a hot surface, and the 68 rubber P/S lines are notorious for cracking at the metal seams. Just last year I witnessed it at a car show, no less... saw the A/T fluid spray all over the engine and instantly catch fire. I replaced the hose twice over a 5 year period. So, when it came to restoration, I didn't think twice about tossing it out for a manual rack.
