I just got the car back from the shop.

They screwed up the installation of the new Holley fuel pump, it was leaking from the hose attachment fitting and dripping gasoline all over my muffler – scary. My wife noticed the garage reeked of gas while I was gone, and I found the leak. They had to send someone over to fix it, after I’d siphoned out almost all of the gas. I could have done it myself but if my car catches on fire now at least it’s their fault, not mine. Needless to say I wasn’t impressed.

They replaced the aftermarket generic fuel pump with a Holley pump, although with no top I’m not going to be able to take it for a shakedown until the weather warms up in UT. I suspect the car will be under wraps for a few months.

While they were fixing it in my garage, I replaced the filter cartridge in the filter between the tank and pump – crystal clear, no junk at all in the filter.

I wonder how hard it would be to replace the fuel lines coming from the Y fitting in the back.

Oh, to top it off – the coolant’s leaking from the water neck again.
