Hi all.
I haven't been around much lately but I'm pleased to say that the world is moving on after the spicy cough debacle and Spring has sprung Down Under so the Chevelle came out of the garage for the first time in a long time, last weekend!
Hopefully those on here that are in Florida can stay safe!

Hi gang.
I hope everyone is well and enjoying your summer!
I've been lurking but not posting much as there hasn't been a lot for me to report on.
Had some fuel delivery dilemmas recently with the fuel pick up looking like it had been mud bashing. I guess it's the result of the rubbish gas we have in Australia and a repro tank that is coming up on 17-18 years of age.
Replaced the sender with a new one I had picked up on one of my visits to your fine country, seemed to be working on the bench but installed it in the tank and it now reads empty with power to it and correct when the ignition is turned off. Anyhoo, I hope everybody enjoys the 4th celebrations.
Cheers.

Cool stuff
You are correct, in the US the YZ was yellow but in Australia and Europe they were white.

Wow, that old sending unit looks terrible! If that's the OEM piece, do yourself a favor and send it off to John Wolf & Co. in Willoughby, Ohio...

They have done two for me in recent years and I have been completely satisfied with their work.

Cheers Bill, I'll have a closer look. The funny part is that as crusty as it is, it still works fine which leads me to think that it may be a factory part.

Still chasing my intermittent stalling issue so i have decided to remove all of the basically brand new Pertronix Flame Thrower ignition and replace it with a Delco distributor and a new Blaster 3 coil. The Delco unit has an 1181 Pertronix module fitted. The strange part is I've had everything tested and all came up good but I'm wondering whether, under load, the module was getting hot?
Anyway, wish me luck! Lol.

Seems like a lot of guys run into issues with the PerTronix stuff. Not sure why, I've never run their stuff.

EDIT: D'oh! Didn't realize how old that last post was and barely read the one above me. A real genius, I am.
