Absolutely. About ten years ago I cleaned the Moraine filters in my Holley, got distracted, and forgot to tighten up one of the fuel fittings. I fired her up and revved it some just to enjoy the sound of my handiwork and then got out to look under the hood. Gasoline was quickly filling up the crevices of my intake manifold and heading to a spill over on to the primary pipes. It was a very close call and I remember it like it was yesterday.
