Nope, that's probably done for. Severe heat and warped panels. So Sad. Another one gone...

It'll be interesting to discover what started the fire. No automatic extinguisher system or portable extinguishers on board?

-crappy fuel line
-brass inlet to carb popped out
-broken plastic fuel filter over distributor
-lack of fuel line clamps

What'd I miss?

Too high fuel pressure from a repop Chinese fuel pump?
