Return Of The Cursed Fuel Gauge...

Okay, so first of all an update. When Troy installed the AC compressor, he noticed that the tachometer was zeroed out and was not reading the engine RPMs at all. I suspected that it was just a loose connection from when we removed the fuel gauge, but still....WHY KARR, just WHY?

As previously mentioned, Tom sent back the fuel gauge which he verified was in working condition. He thoroughly tested it and adjusted it back to factory settings.

Flux Capacitor...Fluxing

Okay, wrong 80s franchise...but still this is the first thing I thought of as I drove off to start my Friday. No, I didn't slip off the toilet and hit my head on the sink! So maybe I was just overly excited to get my day started! ;)

Fuel gauge goes in next...

Feeling Disconnected

I have been feeling lost, frustrated and a little helpless with this whole fuel pump issue. It seems I have tried everything logical and yet it still wasn't working. This whole thing has begun to feel like one of those situations that is just plain out of my control and I just needed to trust that eventually things would just work themselves out. That isn't easy for me to do. However, I know I have done everything that I could do and more and it was time to just step back and let someone else figure it out.

That's why I was so surprised when Troy called this afternoon with a diagnosis. It was something so simple...yet something I would never had thought to check.

Beneath KARR's Dignity?

Maybe not, but the tow truck was definitely beneath him ALL the way to Troy's shop!

Once, Twice, Three Times Ridiculous

The new fuel pump arrived on Thursday morning, but I didn't have time to install before this weekend.  We started yesterday morning by jacking KARR up and putting him on jack stands.

Sometimes When You Are A Pain In The Ass...

You end up getting your ass spanked!  Yes, on the way to Troy's for his appointment to have the parking brake cables and fuel pressure regulator replaced, KARR decided to just stall out half way there.  Then he absolutely refused to start!  Troy had to bring his quad over and literally push KARR from the rear all the way to his shop!  Talk about an indignity befitting his stubborn little shit of a personality...

KARR Wants New Paint...

It's been obvious for quite some time that KARR wants to look new again. Despite that fact that he is often a little shit, he always seems to get what he wants. Why does this behavior seem so familiar? ;) In any case, I have started looking for a painter and I ordered the restoration parts that will be needed before and after paint.  The new parts I ordered from The Fiero Store have arrived, and I want to give you a quick preview.
