lol, sorry wasn't meaning to sound like an asshole, but reading it back that's what I am.

Do you guys have trouble with rusting tanks?? Maybe something to do with salt on the road with cold weather??? Rusty tanks are fairly rare here. That tank looks like it has rust protection on it - none of the ones over here do, and that is pretty rough-looking compared to almost all the ones I've seen.

You'll need to do this again with the proper pump or you'll fry this one in no time (and I'm sure at WOT runs you'll be going lean). The in-tank pump of the early cars is only a transfer pump, it's not designed to be the sole provider of the spec fuel pressure.
