' vacuous' is such a subjective adjective that it is hardly applicable in this instance but the part about minding our own business is an idea we should all be able to get behind.  :chugbeer:

Sometimes even extremely vacuous statements have the potential to become profound, given the background story and relevant anecdotal evidence.
BTW, one cannot expect to tell a neighbor of the existence of a problem and then expect him or her not to inquire about it. Wouldn't be very neighborly of them now, would it?

ABS pump.  Separated the electrical from the mechanical.  Thought someone might like to see some pics.

Thanks Tree.

you may want to pressure test the plenum to make sure that your solder joints are sealed properly. Ü

Thanks,  All the joints looked good but to be sure that there are no vacuum leaks I coated the seams of all joints with Permatex RTV. I think it is all good but I will test for leaks the old fashion way using carb cleaner on the joints while it is running.


Regarding the tank.... :-\.  I think it is a lost cause. After 4 more days of soaking in vinegar it all came out black. I took it to the car wash and watch huge chunks of rust come out of the hole where I removed the fuel gauge sensor. That did clean it up a bit but I can still see a rash of rust spots inside. I put fresh vinegar inside and I can see several places where the vinegar is leaking out on the bottom of the tank.  It doesnt surprise me when I first got it i pulled the carbs and found piles of rust in the bowls. It had ben sitting for over 10 years when I found it.
 My only hope is to coat the outside with petrol proof epoxy and even if it worked I wouldnt trust it not to start leaking again. I should go shopping for a replacement.

Yes agreed, but it would be a lot easier mind one's own business if other people weren't putting their own business out all over the internet.

Cutting through the verbiage, you're just telling me to disregard all vacuous or not vacuous statements and mind my own cotton pickin' bidness?  :finger_fing11:
  Yeah, that was my take on it as well, but I've been wrong in the past.

Thanks for the feedback guys.  I'm sure I didn't apply additional front brake so I guess it was just the weight transfer.  I have to do some suspension tweaking for sure.

...and in said land a man was taught at an early age to not to concern himself with his neighbor's business unless it directly his personal right to life, liberty and pursuit of happiness. Unfortunately and obviously, and to the detriment of society, that lesson is no longer taught.
