    Thanks - it just looked like there was some radiator hose size hose coming from the one on the left. Ah, the one on the left - what I'm taking as hose / tube is probably the aluminum roll cage that has some cushioning zip tied to it??

    This pic shows'm:

    There is foam on the cage to help keep rear passenger from hitting their head. The small hose is part of the rollover vent for the fuel tank that is in the rear. The storage containers are aluminum tubes with threaded caps on each end. They are called Stashkans and are no longer available.

    Nice ride!

    Is the front end supposed to be VW bug or Jeep? It appears to be somewhere between the two.

    It sat for over a year and a half so it needs some work to get it in running shape, mainly fuel delivery issues. Ordered many new parts and hopefully will be running and on the trails soon.

    Sounds like a good time......not so much.
    But it's worth the work for sure.
    Hope you will be very happy with it once it's ready to rock

    It's not too bad. Fuel pump was dead, both pickup and return lines in the fuel cell were deteriorated. While I have it drained and apart I am going to change the pickup to include several Walbro pickups.

    FWIW, it's my understanding that modern gas (ethanol) eats many components that were safe before Ethanol fuel. I just redid my fuel delivery system last summer and opted to use PTFE or Viton to replace any rubber hoses or seals that I could... hopefully it will last a good long time.

    Have you ever looked at Holley Hydramat for fuel pickup? Pretty cool (but expensive) technology!

    Using a hydramat would be a lot easier but for my application it would be about $320. I think I can part together the Walbro setup for about $150.

    Got the new fuel pump and filters in place. Unfortunately now there is no power to the pump so I need to track that down. All fuses in the fuse blocks are good, must be another one somewhere.



    Got the pickup system built and installed.
