Re: gas leak

Found this Saturday, on Sunday we got nice April snowstorm of 3 inches :roll: So checked again yesterday and looks like might be the clamp. I removed everything and the fuel came out clean from filter. I blew air thru it and sprayed easily with no restriction. Reconnected everything and really crank...

So fired up today for first time after brutal midwest winter. Started with no problem but immediately smelled gas and found it leaking heavily from underneath at fuel filter.

Re: Rear “seat” upholstery question

Those are mounting tabs. On my 82 the tabs have holes which are then screwed into the back metal of car. You should already have the holes there if you look closely. They hold the rear seat in place

Re: Down the rabbit hole

The wires loop off screen to the right and attach to wiring harness then loop back into grommet at center of pic. Under car looks like one wire goes to the fuel pump. I don't know why but it has never been connected as long as I've owned car, 3+ years

Re: Down the rabbit hole

Thanks Jim. I did some quick research on the Ospho and it seems like the best stuff to use. It looks as tho I can use it on all the metal surfaces before por so will be good basecoat. Only problem is it needs to be above 36 degrees to apply. It's 12 right now in my unheated Chicago garage and won't ...

The plan is to por15 entire tub with some mesh over small holes. Then ezcool over that and then new carpet. But....before I start is ...

Free Parts Detroit

Free parts. This is not my add. They're all free and going to go in trash unless someone gets them. I asked him for pix but he didn't send. Might be worth it if you're not too far away. Hate to see stuff just tossed.

Re: Headlights went dark

Thanks Richard. I haven't checked the headlight wiring or ground pods yet. The battery clamps are tight. 12.4 volts when car not on, 13.95 with car running, and 13.74 with running and headlights on. Belt is year old and had about 1/2 inch of give when pushed. My co-pilot during the ride said dash li...
