I got my coolant temp sender all sorted out tonight.

First I modified the coolant port that runs to the throttle body from the head. Cut the top off, then drilled and tapped to 1/8 NPT.





Voila, will screw right back into the head!

In general, the EVAP system keeps fuel (vapor) from escaping into the environment.

I got it from some "Hot Rod" shop in Cambridge. I'll let you know if I remember the name of the place. It's just a 36" -3 line.

By the way, I have a spare oil block I'm looking to sell if you're interested.
