      so how to make something that is as simple as cutting apart take 5x longer... use the lathe, of course


      part of the way to finishing the fuel fill

        I don't have a lathe but still find ways to make things take 5X longer.

        BTW - I'm Jonesin' to get back out in the shop but it'll be a while. So I see what you're up to and feel jealous.

          remove some brackets

          dry run on the filler


          weld some tube together

          so that I can fill the tank

            Filler tube looks a little long . Better than too short !

              it's compensating for its small capacity...

                Sounds like a smokey yunick go around for fuel tank capacity . You could also run your fuel line up and down the from 4 times before going to the engine.

                    In a great mood because of Powermaster's crap electronics, I figured I'd work on the Corvette.... guess what, electronic issues.... ugh
                    first problem, though, was mechanical. Fuel goes in on the driver's side (the other FI tech on my '40 is marked)... 100% chance of getting it wrong was right again


                    then wiring, bypassed the clutch switch - system works between it and the starter

                    then bypassed the fender switch

                    however there is more to find.... I'm really close to jumping from the starter wire on the column to the starter....

                    ah well, it does sound glorious

                        I hate my camera... took this picture

                        but since I must have turned it off too soon, didn't save the next picture my clever button install.... I'm sure it'll show later, but for now it's far more unattractive then you might imagine... and it's temporary - remember, I want to do burnouts and the days are drawing to a close
                        oh wait, Imgur problem... here's the picture - eventually it will control what it says - for now, it starts the car


                        Also got the bottom of the radiator mounted along with some hosing...



                        problem is I need to run hard line next to the belt so I'm waiting for parts again (should be here thursday)

                          parts arrived

                          while the hole is open - I mostly filled the engine/radiator... 3 gallons and counting


                          and now running...

                                it's idling at 900 rpm.... it gets a lot louder above that point - but I tend to avoid doing that in my shop... when it dries a bit there will be a smokeshow.
