    I'm getting ready to pull this 144 out of the 62 Ranchero to swap into the 61. I've only swapped one engine in my life, which was also a 144 but that was over 30 years ago so prior experiences in this area are hazy at best.

    In my original 1961 Ranchero, I don't recall this tri-color tube I'm seeing here, which seems to be coming off of the top of the fuel pump apparatus and then disappears into the rear firewall:

    Can anyone clue me in here? What is it?

    Ya beat me to it. Keep all those parts, if they're in good condition. You never know, you might be able to use, sell, or trade them.
