    I am going to pull it apart and look. Its a fresh rebuild from december of 2016 and its actually only had gas in it for a couple weeks.

    May have been some junk in the fuel line.

    Another move forward. Tires and wheels installed. She is ready for the Highway.
    Having a hard time adjusting the hood, got the top by the windshield as low as I can but its still sitting a little high. other than that its all smiles...

    Next on the list will be the Z28 stipes. Going to go with white. I know black is the norm with yellow but the white just looks better to me.[​IMG]

    All polished up and ready for the rest of summer. First time its had wax on it since at least 2002 when she was parked in a garage in southern Ohio. Pretty sure it wasn't freshly waxed when it was parked either.[​IMG]
