I don't follow you here.I am afraid to cut them off myself because I can’t drive it to the shop then.
By chance, you mentioned that in another thread, Geoff: how did you check your sender after installment? Fill it with 5 gallons and see if it show 1/4 full?IF you can get it down to a 1/4 full, 5 gallons, you can used two jacks to raise the left side high enough to get the sender out. One jack will kind of twist the car. Use jack stands as well of course. This is how I did my sender adjustment after putting in the new tank. I used the Dorman 692232 sender with zero issues so far.
Well it was 19 liters actually which equals 5 US gallons and yes as the tank is a 20 US gallon tank, it's the last quarter that's the most important (so you don't unexpectedly run out!!)By chance, you mentioned that in another thread, Geoff: how did you check your sender after installment? Fill it with 5 gallons and see if it show 1/4 full?
Tim, glad that is a help for you and I hope, kcmash as well, not heard from him yet.Yes, Geoff, that helps. I hope mine will read ok out of the box, though :biggrin:
Btw: how is the situation up there in Canada? I heard it is unusual hot in there... Hope, you come through the heat without any damage - asked Ken about it as well!
Glad to hear, you are good there! Yes, the weather has gone crazy this year - in Europe we got flooded since weeks and you are baked on the other side! Hope this will be not normality in future... Keep safe and take care, Geoff!Tim, glad that is a help for you and I hope, kcmash as well, not heard from him yet.
As for the weather, in my area it has not been nearly as hot as "out west" where it hit 49.6 C in a small town in BC, just before most of that town was destroyed by a wild fire. Very tragic, but it seems all but 2 people got out in time. Locally, it's been the humidity that has been really draining on us, 32 C or 90F deg and 80% humidity. Now rain and heavy T storms. The weather has gone nuts!!
Enjoy the sweat!We always have 80%+ humidity. Has been hot here but that is normal. I head to Charlotte tomorrow will be 10 deg. hotter than here for car show.
I spoke to scotty last week, he gets $249 for the recurved distributor for our engines which includes the rebuilt distributorNice article, and if I could find the Duraspark for the $69 in the article I would do it. I am finding $260 for just the Dizzy that needs recurve.
In your case, the problem will be knowing when your tank is down to a true 1/4 or 5 US gallons. I guess that if you can syphon it to almost totally empty, a small amount remaining won't make a huge difference. Beside, if you set your gauge to read a 1/4 and you actually have 6 gallons, it would be like having a "reserve". Better more than less eh!Sorry I have not replied this week. Really busy.
I have never thought about having to calibrate the sending unit float arm, and I think I will pass on that activity. The tilt the car idea sounds great, I am able to band aid my current unit enough to see that I am between 1/4 and 1/8 tank, so I will look to switch senders soon.
I can’t win on the exhaust. Finally got into a exhaust shop that does custom and OEM exhaust and has a top notch reputation. I have never seen another Mach 1 with the tips so poorly aligned with the valance. Back to square 1.
