I'll get back to you Sunday. It's been a few weeks since I've tried it and cant remember if it was or not. You've been a great help so far. I'll take a few pics of the car while I'm at it.

It wouldn't run today. I was getting gas to the fuel pump but not to the carb. I pulled the filter and rust poured out. New tank, old lines. I drained the gas out cause it was full of trash. I'm getting a new filter and some carb cleaner I'll get back to it next weekend. I hope this has been my problem all along.

I put a new fuel filter on it Wednesday, charged the battery put in some seafoam. Today I put the battery in and drove it around the yard. It had a vacuum leak and plugged that and tuned the carb. She's running good now. I need tags and I'll hit the highway and report back hopefully next week.

Looking for anything in particular?
Lots of folks have old tapes laying around, usually more than willing to give them away, or eBay and even some second hand/thrift stores at times will have them..

Classic country and rock. I plan on buying some. I'm gonna hit a flea market or two.

Turns out the guy I bought the car from was wrong. It's a 351m.
