Re: Who is dropping headlight bars out there?

Thanks for the feedback. I've met Pete - good guy. But having a hard time getting ahold of him. Maybe he's just busy.

Yes, redrill the flange on the sending unit.

1932 gas tank sending unit, passenger car

Deuce lovers -

Re: new engine start-up problems

Gents, coming back to this thread. Three weeks and I'm still out of answers. I've chased down every rabbit hole I know. Here is what I've done:
