Re: New Member from Denver

Harold,

If the throttle was closed when you did the test you will get low readings. The throttle and choke need to be wide open while doing the test.

Re: To coat or not to coat?

A new tank is about $170.00. About twice the cost of coating the tank that will fail some time down the line. If it was mine I would just buy a new tank. YMMV.

Re: Fred Houston

I an so sad to here this. I agree with Trent Boggess. "We are diminished." I was lucky enough to have known Fred for many years, gone on tours he attended and/or organized and visited with him in his shop many times. My condolences to his family.
