HOW ABOUT FUEL PUMP PROBLEMS ..I THINK I HAVE A BADD FUEL PUMP HOW CAN I TELL IF IT IS BADD.....I CAN DRIVE A FEW

MILES THEN IT STARTS TO SPUTTER THEN IT JUST DIES......

I WAIT FOR A WHILE IT STARTS BACK UP LIKE NOTHING AND WILL RUN FOR A LIL WHILE THEN DO THE SAME THING AGAIN????

Jay,see if gas is leaking from small hole in bottom of pump.The hole is there so when the diaphram cracks you can see a drip.Does the car have a fuel filter? You might check it especially if it sputters at higher rpm. The fuel pump kits are dirt cheap,I just bought one on ebay for 5.00 bucks.Just keep checking ebay for tail lense,I seen 2 on there within last couple of days. Had any luck on sidemounts or visor? Keep us posted! Thanx,Mike

Jay, pump is fairly easy too rebuild. REALLY PAY CLOSE ATTENTION TOO ORIENTATION OF THE TWO SMALL SPRINGS&PLASTIC PLATES!!!! I tried too pay close attention when I took mine apart and still screwed it up.Luckily I have a service manual so I had too stare at it for awhile to figure it out.Thanx for the websites, I've bought some items from Fusick before but the other site I'd never seen.They have some neat items! I should have my car back together soon (pending food,gas,kids,WIFE !!!ect.)so I'l get some pictures posted. Talk too you later,Mike

jay,hope that fixes the problem.I just finished all new brake shoes, wheel cylinders,ss lines and master cylinder on mine.I went with the new dot5 silicone brake fluid since everything was new.It's not suppost too draw moisture like dot3&4.It also has a higher boiling point,but don't think that's an issue with drum brakes.The biggest excitment was having my 11 year old son help bleed the brakes.He was still better than my wife.NEVER HAVE YOUR WIFE HELP BLEED YOUR BRAKES!!!!!! I finally found that black trim for the ashtray I've been searching for,from a guy in new mexico.I should have my car ready soon,so when the weather breaks I'l be ready too go.Can't wait! I've only driven it once around the block when I bought it in nov. Talk too ya later, Mike

Hi guys,

New to the forum but very cool rides. I just bought a F36 and am looking forward to redoing it. It's in pretty good shape, but I'll probably go through all of it.

I saw the string of messages about the RH tail light. I would like to find one of them for mine. If you happen to know where I can get one, let me know.

Here are some pics:

Gotta admit that it looks great lowered... if only the roads in Wisconsin didn't look like an artillery test range!
