The car looks great, those wheels look very good....but I think a set of Incas would really do it justice!

You have 2.25 sets...do it!

Sunburst look best with the center cap off, a new one down in the hub hole, and the scallops painted... wil go try to log in with my desktop, and show you the difference, as I can't get the Blackberry to talk to the mac yet.

I love those wheels on that car. I think it looks great and will be amazing with a little tender loving care to the paint (after the major mechanical fixes of course.)

Well, I had a nice drive Sunday in the green '73 99 - about 25 miles of urban freeway driving.

I pulled off the freeway and the car stalled, like it had been stalling before. It felt exactly like before, fuel starvation. I got it home (and the fuel starvation started getting worse). I pulled the fuel filter I put in before I left on vacation, and it was clogged, and dripping with small pieces of rust-colored debris. Just like the old one I pulled off.

I've put about 40 miles on the car since putting in the fuel filter. At this rate of fuel filter consumption, I'm looking at 4 or 5 fuel filters per tank. Although the fuel filter in the car is very easy to change, 40 miles per fuel filter is (I presume) an unnaturally high rate of consumption.

So I've got a bunch of rusty crap in the tank. What's the recommended protocol, keep changing fuel filters until it's gone? Drop and clean the tank?

Thanks again for the advice and guidance. FWIW the car seems to be running well otherwise. I had it up to 80 on the freeway.

Greg A

40 miles is definitely abnormal.

you could try something like this http://www.kbs-coatings.com/Auto-Fue...it_p_7-34.html I used that stuff for a motorcycle tank, and it worked awesome. Might be a bit of a pain on a car tank, since its bigger, but its probably your only option at this point, not like you can buy a new tank.

Greg, drop it and get it tanked. I did this for my Z. It was cheap and worthwhile. The biggest pain is getting rid of all the old gas.

Not sure of who in MPLS does it though.

Well, after yesterday's revelation -- that having no gas in the tank will cause fuel starvation issues -- I decided today to flush and fill the cooling system.

Interesting problem -- the coolant drain on the engine block won't drain. I got as much out as I could and did a couple of half flushes, but obviously I need to get all of it to drain at some point.

I might wait until I can get it up on a lift, because the drain itself is tucked up and under the exhaust pipe.

With the imminent resurrection of the 99 Turbo, I have too many cars and too little space.

So the car is SOLD -- to a good home, i.e., JK's garage. Dropped off this afternoon.

Heh!

No, my other 99 will make a better winter beater...the '99 9-3

I'll drive the '73 down southern MN and throw it in a nice garage/shed/thing for the winter, then figure out what I want to do with it this spring. 1st thing will probably be to drop the gas tank and get that stabilized. After that, whatever, drive it until the motor, trans, or engine management doesn't work then change it for something more betterer.
