That's a good point about the installed height of the S10 spindle. I hadn't thought of that. Interesting.

I also melted the nylon pad cross-pins in a SCCA 18 lap showroom stock race in 1983.They re-hardened on the cool-down lap,and left me with a scarey few moments at the pit stall! I have just retreived the car from long-term storage, and want to drive it soon. Any source for a new fuel tank or advice on re-hab.of mine (and the in-tank pump-sender)? Thanks.(BTW the 305 V-8 car was just the opposite on the track of what you'd expect:compepative in braking and handling,but too slow a top-end on the straights vs.Porsche ,Rx-7 Mustang turbo SVO etc.)

I did the tank on my Cosworth with the Renu process:

It's been 3 years so far and no problems.

As for the sender, I haven't seen them around. Some have used one from a Fiero, you may want to search the site on that. If you're feeling adventurous, you could probably clean and/or replace just the potentiometer part of the unit, as it's a standard 90 ohm GM piece.
