          johnny, for safety sake, use a metal fuel filter. those can be used for diagnosing fuel problems, but can be a fire hazard.

            heres another tip you might can use sometime,save the lids for your spray can,the if you need to touch up something,just spray some paint in the lid and dip away with your q tip,or paint brush.when you get done,let the paint dry in the lid,and you can put it back on.

              Liking these tips, when I physically take possession of the '71 Swinger I am getting, which should happen next weekend (Apr27-28), I am working on a list of what needs to be taken care of & what I am thinking of doing, to add my touch to it. So, I will be checking out a lot things here.

                        At least it's not a for sale ad from 2005 asking if the part is still available... :BangHead:
