Re: Buzzing noise from fuel tank

I would do it myself because I'm broke but I HATE doing Fuel system work.
Dries out hands, etc.  It  SUCKS A*#.   Trust me. If you can, have someone
else do it.  I would (IF I could afford it)

BTW:  MC motor is getting pulled tomorrow.  IT is unbolted and
ready to come out.  WooHoo.  Cant wait.  Got tons of little stuff line the
entire power/battery cable out today.  Got it out intackt with all
connectors etc.  Even the part from the Fuse Box and I didn't even have to
budge the dash.  Pretty good Huh!  I'll give details later since this
ins't a personal message. Oops :-)
