Roger, how is your sale progressing? How has the response been from your Facebook ads?

Haven't been trying very hard to sell I did the one FB post. It generated a lot of compliments, a bit of controversy over whether it should be priced like it was.

Got a couple offers that involved a trade. Not interested in trades.

I got the fitting today. But (there's awlays a but, isn't there?).

The threads are only 3/8" in depth. So it completely screws into the inlet, never tightens. I expect it would leak.

Wondering now if there is a thread sealer that would work with it.

[EDIT]
I have decided I am going to siphon the gas out of the tank, fully pull it, and rotate the pump.

I like that better than the mess I came up with.

That picture in your link was how I was going to do it at first and then I saw the video from Speedeway and went their way. Glad I did.

Finished modifying the direction the hoses face, and it'll work out. The video drove it home.

Too bad I didn't see that earlier. But all in all, wasn't too big a deal.

One thing funny: I took it for a drive (before I knew of the leak), and thought I was losing my mind. I drove up toward Jax and back. Shouldn't have used much gas...maybe a 50 mile round trip. It used over a half tank. I thought maybe I misread the gauge. But after finding this leak, I realize that was what about emptied my tank.
