    Back to work on this beast 😁 got the tank straps fabbed and installed. I wanted to make them out of stainless but didn’t want to buy a massive roll of strapping, nobody local had any in stock so I went with ⅛”x1” mild steel strapping. I’ll paint for corrosion control. I used a fuel resistant rubber ‘tape’ as insulation/isolation of the tank where the mounts will touch it. It’s not going anywhere 😃

    So, I messed up.....

    Feisty 😈 I’m always in for a good read of an internet arguement 😁 also pretty sure both my L20’s had a NPT sensor installed in them. NPT taps are cheap, just tap it and go.

    I would thread the sensor in what’s left of the threads and tighten her down.

    I’s there a spacer on fuel pump?

    Yes. The spacer is usually a plastic material to help prevent heat transfer from the head to the pump/fuel. There will be a gasket on both sides of the spacer as well so a total of 2 gaskets are needed.

    This section of the shop is 50x100, added onto an existing building that was approx 60x60. It’s my work though so if I stack a ton of stuff around here it takes up room for money making work.

    Just picked up another KC

    Thanks. I decided i’ll drive it when weather permits until KC #1 is finished then i’ll likely sell it.

    Thanks! Just standing at my office door as I was getting ready to call it a night and saw it. They both seemed to be looking at me for attention 🤣

    KC #2 is pretty much roadworthy so time to get back to KC #1 😁

    Far from perfect but she fits together much nicer after pulling

    She was smacked pretty good 😳 As evidenced by this twisted body mount. This photo was taken perpendicular to the mount 😳

    Just picked up another KC

    Guess the decision has been made for me

    Just picked up another KC

    Tomorrow i’ll see about getting it running, maybe driving. I’ll likely end up cleaning it up, getting it roadworthy and then passing it along.

    Thanks! I started a new thread to keep track of it/decide what to do with it 🤷🏼‍♂️😂
