But on other side of the coin. On Kristi's 74 the fuel gauge didn't work. Chased the wires down to a ground on the tank. Dropped the tank and found the fuel line from the tank was cracked. Ran all over the place trying to find the correct fitting, no one had it. Oh well, parked for another day.


The fitting on the tank is made of unobtainium. I think it's a Whitworth thread. I don't think you will find one locally (this side of the pond).

Can you cut the metal line closer to the tank and reuse the fitting by making the hose to the pump longer? This discovery could explain why the car was "stumbling". It could have been sucking air thru the crack in the line (since it was on the suction side of the pump).

Maybe you can repair the line???? (JB Weld, solder, epoxy, etc???)

I'll look but I don't think I have a spare fitting ;(
