Re: Crusty Rusty Leaky Squeaky 67 Step

Well Vic, I'm glad you made it out. I'm sorry it ended poorly, but at least it made it back home in one piece. I've seen too many classics get wrecked lately that I'd take the troubles you're having over that any day.

As my wife likes to say when I tell her I need to do something to the vehicles... "it's always something."

Yikes well if 2/2 times you filled up with mid grade it died then I would say it's a good bet that you will need to run premium only gas.
Try putting a bottle of octane booster in it and if it runs without an issue then you know you need to run premium only gas.
I can't remember did you install a canister style filter, if so pull the canister and look at the filter and see if it's dirty as hell, if not it's probably the grade of the gas.
Please call me Brian.
