    Yea Tom thats what they are for and exactly why I have such a large supply of the damn things..............

    Well got a few things done today, made three trips to NAPA to get the right belt for the fuel pump relocation. Got fuel pump mounted and piped tied up some loose ends added an extra temp gauge for the right side. I was hoping to get her running by sunday but it looks like as with all my projections its a little bit off, now shooting for next wednesday........
