  1. Thanks Hemi, Another friend / car enthusiast (NASA engineer, really) told me the same, In the spring I will replace the tank and while I'm at it, the pump, about $200 for both. In the future can I also fill the tank completely and add a little dry gas to prevent condensation?
  2. Mine has recently done the same, running fine then acts like someone just turned off the ignition key, I can wait fifteen minutes and it will start, I suspect the fuel pump mainly because after it runs for a while there is a high pitch noise coming from the fuel tank, noticed it about a month ago when I had it on a lift. has anyone else had a noisy fuel pump, is that common? going into storage for the winter in a couple weeks and was going to deal with it in the spring. THX
  3. Thank you Hemi & Reaper, I of course will take your advise, I honestly wish I could repay the favor with exchanging some of my knowledge, but you two have me beat hands down. maybe some day?
  4. I love my 16v, and she's been running great lately especially after I replaced the pick up coil in the distributor, BUT, after she drives for a while there's a high pitch noise coming from the fuel tank, I'm assuming this is the pump with the sock filter on it (Is this noise normal?). then today going up a steep incline she lost her power and started sputtering, Its happened a few times over the past few years. I always try to keep her with more than half a tank and that seems to help a little. Any thoughts are appreciated as always. she's going to bed for the winter in a month but I love driv
  5. Is it the same? I probably have a couple yards of it, its yours if you want it.
  6. How much pinstripe do you need? I think I have a small roll in the garage.
  7. Thanks Hemi, I hope you've been well, in our state over twenty years is not required, but I also dont want to be adding pollutants to the environment knowingly. Any suggestions on a replacement? I will check Rock Auto.
  8. Hi Gang, For the past couple years my catalytic converter has always rattled a little especially at start up and more so when the engines cold, It's been getting a little worse lately. My brother is suggesting to cut it out and just go with a straight pipe splice. can anyone tell me why I shouldn't do that? Thanks
  9. Thanks Reaper, I'm sorry, sort of jumping threads here, in the other thread "Strange Things" I was complaining about the car running "slightly off" and the tach jumping around. You suggested that it might be the TPS which I replaced but still off and on erratic. Hemi suggested the HEP ( Hall effect plate) that I replaced (with a STANDARD) along with a new Blue streak cap and STANDARD rotor with new plug wires from Rick Diego while I'm in that area. So my car was running, just acting funny, not it's usual smooth self. But now it wont start at all, I just ordered a Duralast CR121 HEP
  10. EBAY has one manufactured or distributed by Formula Auto Parts PUC20, any thoughts?
  11. Now my car wont start, I suspect I have the same issue with the NFG STANDARD hall effect plate as No1parfive, can anyone tell me where to source a good Hall effect assembly, I looked at Delphi Brand web site they have nothing listed. I guess I'm doing this twice.
  12. was standard the good replacement or the one that failed?
  13. Hard time interpreting I just bought a Standard rotor, hall effect plate and bluestreak cap, are these OK? cables from Rick D, tomorrows mission, I dont want to do this twice. Please advise
  14. I'll get under it and take a look around this weekend also I remember seeing a vacuum line probably going to that bypass valve that was sandwiched between two other hoses that might need some correcting, thanks
  15. I believe I did disconnect one hose ( maybe 1") that went to the bottom of that valve, but I'm sure I reconnected it, I moved it to get a little more access to the larger 3" lower radiator hose. could I have damaged or disconnected something by accident? THX
