There is just so much wrong with this. Bicycles are all about efficiency. They've got wheels rubbing on boards and shocks doing all this work. Real cute, but real useless.

I ordered a replacement fuel pump.
It showed up and realize it wasn’t the same pump. It looked about the same but the info that came with it said 3-7psi. Not sure I trust any of that info on a China pump.

Anyway, I ordered a third pump.

1st got fried.
Second was wrong one (probably uses more than 1 amp).
Third one had same specs as the first, but the wire ends are different.

Fuel delivery is back on!
May our engines drink and their bowls always be full.

My sisters are not hot. One just had her 20 year wedding anniversary (poor fella, my brother in law). The other one is mother to my oldest nephew. Just turned 16. I'm thinkin about giving him my car.

But I'd like to make him work on it first.

Make him change the oil, replace the wipers, do the brakes (rotors and pads), flush the coolant, drain and refill the trans fluid, change the spark plugs... then give him the car. I feel these are things that any car owner should know how to do. And at 16, he should probably know how to turn a wrench. I didn't start "working" on stuff till much older.

Missy is probably hot again.

Sounds like a good lesson for your nephew at a minimum.

That's either a fuel system or a Rube Goldberg machine.

It is a battery, a fuse, a switch, a tank (with check valve vent), a pump, a return line, and a fuel shut off valve. Pretty basic.

Ok, just stay exactly where you are right now. Don't move.

Best pair of 18 watt Off road led lights I could find for under $15.
Pretty sure amazon is selling these on eBay.
Purchased from eBay, but had an Amazon Trk # and came wrapped up in Amazon Prime tape?

There’s a nut built into the casing that can slide but not turn.
The bracket also holds the bolt head so it cannot turn.
Smart.

Comes with all the hardware (bolts, washers, nuts, lock washers, brackets). So far I’m impressed.

New plan 3300 RPM engagement 4500 RPM shift. 4500 RPM keeps voltage under 15 according to the data I collected.

Shortest post ever because this is being a Pain in the a$z today. I typed the conclusion how it all comes together. Tire size, gear ratio, TC springs, Exhaust length, powerband, charging voltage,... I had linear regressions, quadratic regressions, I had graphs and charts,... LOL

I typed it twice and lost it both times.
