    The neverending battle with the bright ideas the PO has

    Doing some chassis electrical modification, I'll definitely do a write up on that even if just to stroke my own ego. But it seem the PO has been thinking (a dangerous pastime indeed) and came up with an idea. Now I pose to you, the people who have seen everything under the sun: What the hell...

    Need help with rear shock tube

    Float is level, there is fuel in the filter, and the manafold is holding steady exactly at 15 inches of mercury And because this is pump 4 this is quickly becoming simple Took 15 minutes to load the pump with a little fuel, bolt in pump, siphon fuel up to the fuel filter from the tank, take a...
