I AM A FREEKIN IDIOT!  Wait till you hear this one.  So I thought it was time to take a little test spin down my street.  Hopped in started her up, took off down the street, running like a champ.  Then all of a sudden she dies, out of gas I think.  Push and coast black to the driveway.  Add gas, hop in....nothing.  Must be the fuel pump again.  Took it off, made sure it was OK.  Put it back in.  Hopped in, wham started right up.  Took off down the street and EXACTLY THE SAME THING HAPPENS AGAIN WTF!  Coast back, get out, check everything again.  Hmmm better check the gas line.  Now I had put in a 1/4 inch neoprene line, and had some extra so I just looped it on top of the tank.  Now my seat is not bolted down and when I plopped my fat butt into the seat, the back bar pinched the line cutting off the fuel.  Duhhhhhh!!!  Cheesy. Rerouted the Line and she runs perfect!  The speedometer even works! 👍

That's a new one.   Glad you found the problem.  We could have all gone done a rabbit hole on this one. Smiley

Well just about time to wrap it up for this year.  Got her running and driving, no leaks except maybe a drop or two out of the rear main, but nothing I am going to worry about.  Got to start working on my combine to get it ready for harvest, so time to put her away till April.  Made HUGE progress this summer so I thought I would include a few photos that show you can fix almost anything if you are stubborn enough.

Now you can look forward to driving it and sorting out the little details here and there.  It looks great, nice work.
