Mechanical archeology


What we have here is fuel pump module (in tank) on a Chebby Tahoe.   That nasty rusted out relic from the revolutionary war is the lock ring that holds the module in place.  It took me an hour with a pick and a vacuum cleaner to get enough rust knocked off this hunk of crap that I could get the module out of the tank without damaging the tank.

Chevy.... I am talking to YOU here.  You built this thing so the unit is in EXACTLY the best possible place to capture every bit of road salt and Amish exhaust, and also stay wet long after the rest of the vehicle is dry.

What the hell were you thinking?
