Hi olli, just had the same problem a couple of months ago, mine was just what you mentioned, the connection at the sending unit. I recently dropped the tank to send the car off to body shop. In doing so I wished that I'd lifted the car a bit more (jack stands under read end) so b...

400bird, If you want, I'll pull a couple hoses and try to measure, although the ends might be enlarged from being on for a few years. However, while a bit confusing, I believe the parts book does show them: http://www.thefirstgensite.com/library/partscounter/illustrated/front/wi...

I can tell you it would probably run better than this Petronix even though it's in a serious state of decay. In an earlier post I was fussing and whining about the MSD distributors and how they seem to "S!*t the bed" too soon and were too expensive. I went through a co...
