RECENT REPAIR WORK CONSISTS OF NEW FUEL TANK, SENDER, AND ALL RELATED HARDWARE ITEMS. MATERIALS SUPPLIED BY FUSICK AUTOMOTIVE. INSTALLED NAPA ELECTRIC FUEL PUMP FOR CONVENIENCE AND SAFETY.

IN JUNE '17 WE INSTALLED PREMIUM COKER WWW RADIALS TIRES IN CORRECT ORIGINAL SIZE, DUE TO UNKNOWN AGE (SERIAL NUMBERS CAN'T TRACED, SO ASSUMED THEY WERE OVER 20 YRS. OLD). THESE TIRES MAKE A BIG DIFFERENCE IN RIDE QUALITY- THANKS CORKY !IN JANUARY THE BRAKES ACTED UP, CULPRIT WAS WORN TREADLE VA, SO I SENT IT TO WHITE POST RESTORATION ( WHO I'VE BEEN USING FOR ABOUT 25 YEARS, WHEN THEY DO THESE UNITS THEY HAVE THE PROPER PEDAL RESPONSE). FROM MY EXPERIANCE WHEN THE MASTER CYLINDER GETS REPLACE, THE WHEEL CYLINDERS TEND TO LEAK DUE TO INCREASED PRESSURE, SO ALL WERE REPLACED ALONG WITH 4 BRAKE HOSES AND BRAKE SHOES & AVAILABLE HARDWARE (SUPPLIED BY NAPA, POMPANO BEACH)IN MAY '18 THE CENTRAL PUMP LEAKED, SO IT WAS SENT TO PUNTA GORDA'S HYDRO ELECTRIC FOR REFURBISHMENT (THEY'VE BEEN DOING THESE PUMPS FOR ME AS LONG AS I CAN REMEMBER) ALWAYS FIRST RATE WORK.
