New modem was installed, the router connected and traffic began flowing immediately.

You have my word that this is the most tank shaking coverage you will see in any video. Why so much tank agitation? Because in this episode I clean and seal the 40 year old fuel tank using the POR-15 fuel tank restoration kit. This is something which several h... (more)

Part 37: Carbureted Fuel Tank Conversion to In Tank EFI Pump - My 76 Mazda RX-5 Cosmo Restoration Part 37 of my 1976 Mazda RX-5 Cosmo Restoration has been posted to YouTube. Part 37 of my '76 Mazda Cosmo restoration focuses on one specific task in great detail. That task is converting the old carburetor feeding fuel tank to one which can satisfy the high pressure needs of fuel injection. The approach I take is to modify the tank to accept an in tank fuel pump via custom bracket, emulating the approach used on modern vehicles. My inspiration for the setup was the Aero... (more)
