Fuel Pump Ground Wiring

Radio Antenna I had a few hours on Saturday morning to devote to the the cat in the garage. I picked up where I left off which was with the continued removal of the radio antenna crank mechanism. Since the antenna itself is hard to get to and I won’t try to remove it until […]

Harness Fastener & Clip

Car in Garage

This was a significant day in the tear down of the Jag. I no longer call her “Stinky.” I concluded that I have now removed enough of the car that it no longer smells so bad that I cannot keep it in the garage. So, I put down a tarp and rolled the Jag into […]

Sniffing each other

He liked the idea because he put the electric switch in the aluminum pump canister thereby eliminating the need to install an additional switch […]
