Another positive thing happened as I finished the center console - I noticed this:

The gas gauge works!

And it looks like there is enough of something (like gas) in the tank that maybe it is not all gunky or corroded. So i can drain it - maybe 2-3 gallons - and hopefully put some new gas with antifreeze and be okay. I can be an optimist. 🙂

 

If I can avoid pulling the gas tank out, that would save me a ton of time for stuff to get done. Right now I am up against the Powerland date and not being able to go out for parts or supplies and deliveries being delayed. Only 9 weeks and I still need to get the driveshaft shortened and have an exhaust pipe made to connect the headers (if EE can get them made) to my exhaust system.

Anyone want to recommend a brand of electric fan?

I'll take quiet, cheap, or good quality. Two out of three would be nice.

 

Anything to help narrow down the choices, since I don't know about any of them and never had one.

 

Seems to be a ton on ebay and amazon.

Davies Craig. Not cheap, but supposedly very good. I bought an cheap ebay fan some years back. Waste of money. 😞

Retrofit factory parts.  Pull a junkyard setup.  Best fans on earth and cheap too. Find something of a similar displacement and go from there.

Ebay and Amazon take forever now … Summit is practically overnight delivery still .. (I don't know about fans, but I doubt they sell ebay/amazon quality)

 

Oh, and this wagon is awesome

I installed a pair of Hayden fans just yesterday on the green FJ car.

They were replacements for the fans that had been in there for 20 years or so.

I was mightily impressed by their customer service.
