Any suggestions on how to get a 1/4" nipple on my flame arrestor so I can hook up this fuel line from the fuel pump vent.

Sparky, a lot of the original flame arrestor's had a 1/4" nipple attatched to a small "L" bracket that was riveted to the base of the air cleaner. Maybe look around for an old one drill the rivet out and re-attach. the little piece of 1/4" aluminum tube was just poked through the screen near the base.

Well I cheated a bit and bought a new K&N flame arrestor, they have optional nipple adapters to make hookup easier!
