The "dangle" being the fuel lever connected to a bgm fast flow. On a stock tap the angle is a strong 45 degrees from horizontal. The opening in the bgm that accepts the end of the lever and pin is a smaller diameter so it does not let the lever hang down as much, only about 20-25 degrees. In my case, in a GL frame, it's just enough that it won't clear the inside of the frame and feed into the lever opening. Anyone else find this out? I guess I could bend the lever slightly to make up the diff but want to see what others did.
