    Tim, it's an electrical pump.
    I wrap a small wet hotel towel around the pump and the car runs great again . Guess I better move the pump later into the tank.

    Sounds great, I'm on the way and we reach Williams/Arizona yesterday :)

  10. Martin: When you visited the wiskey distillers here in Kentucky you said you only "smelled" the bourbon. Have you "smelled" anything in Las Vegas?

    Thanks guys !
    We left L-V and went north to a very small town called Lee Vining in CA. It's next to Mono Lake and is also the east entrance for the Yosemite park. The scenic roads are unreal, totally amazing.
    We went up Tioga for some breakfast yesterday and then back and headed up to then Ghost town Bodie which was abandoned in 1940.
