Re: No power to in-tank fuel pump

Rainer, I seem to recall having to stand on your head or something like that, in order to actually "see" the timing marks #-o Seriously, I can check and see what they have in the "Big Blue Book" over the weekend, but really won't be able to post my findings till Monday next week :( But as this is yo...

Re: M30B34 Spark Plug Wrench

Hey Bert, Good point and the S38/M88 does require a special thin walled socket of sorts, but as the subject indicates this is for the M30B34, a standard plug socket and appropriate ratchet would work just fine =D> Curious about the "plain plug wrenches" you have for sale for $28 :shock: How 'bout a ...

Hey mikeB7, true, but also don't forget that the UK fenders will have holes to mount the repeaters behind the front wheel wells, which I kinda like, by the way \:D/
