  1. the access hole SHOUld allow you to remove and replace the sending unit without dropping the tank. I know I have done so in FEF. Not lined up perfect, but enough to get things swapped.

    what are the rules cruise in/ car shows

    you should have paid and parked...and likely had a larger group of people checking out the oddball vehicle than some of the trailer queens...when I go to the local MoPaRs in the Park, I enter in the "appearing as original" class...I've won it and it was fun to see the snobs with their (admitted) bought cars gets fewer looks than a big old red truck. NOTHING gets "those" people more hot under the collar than see things like that happen...preconceived notions and all.

    NiCopp Brake Lines

    I ran FEF's fuel line stock original in the Cupronickle lines and had no "hot gas" issues. I did redo the fuel pump to carb line by moving it away from the manifold slightly, but still have yet to have a boiling issue at all. Some people's concerns confuse me...it's like the "noisy" cab issue some complain about....yet I really don't experience that either.
  7. should be no reason to drop the tank, you should be able to take it out the access hole?
