Default Like Xmas in April

Got a package all the way from Australia. $148US, some odds and ends from Toyota and my filler neck is supposedly being shipped.

Came with the stock Toyota transfer pump

He he he

I may put it in this weekend or next. If anyone who is getting one wants to see how it goes together, let me know and I will coordinate when I install it.

NICE score Ken. Glad to see it finally arrived

It will be interesting to see what your range ends up being with both tanks topped off.

Since I follow your lead I almost scored one from Australia on Australian ebay...It was complete with the filler neck and all but the seller never got back to me re: shipping to the US...Funny thing though, the winning bidder was from the US

Obviously I haven't recovered from my disease to buy stuff I have absolutely no use for at the present time but I need the tank to go with my overhead subtank and altimeter console

Tank is in, wired and tested.

It was nice seeing the fuel gauge go the other direction. The nice thing about George's ECU is shuts off automatically when the tank is empty so you won't burn out the pump.


I created an FAQ on Mud. That's what I do

Really nice Ken! Very thorough write up. That must have taken you quite a bit of time.
