I'd go ahead and get a good aftermarket one. Holley....BBk.... Walbro....


Any major future plans for engine mods?

nothing serious, planning on PI heads and intake and possibly some ST1 cams.

I guess with your miles it'd be a good idea.

Only tip I got for you is to use a bunch of bungy cords. You can lift and lower the tank with one finger.

And when putting the new grommet it, lube it up A LOT with motor oil and it'll pop on in 2 seconds. Otherwise youll be there for hours sweating your balls off and eventually ripping the thing to pieces.

It's an easy job :comando:

luckily i went brain dead on my way home the other night after running all over the place and forgot to gas up. the tank is about as empty as its ever been... i just bought 5 gallons in a can to make sure id make it back into town after the repair ;D

thanks for the tips, MAXX

dropping the tank isn't to bad at all...did you pick up a fuel pump? A Ford Racing 190lph would be a nice upgrade for your future mods. Might be a good time to change the fuel filter also.
