    I think I'll try a regulator. I just have a cheap $50.00 electric fuel pump on it. It's not high performance at all but it still could be too much.

    Carter vs Solex gas mileage.

    I have a question for anyone with the F-head engine who has had both the Carter and the Solex carburetor. Did you notice much of a difference in gas mileage between the two?

    Thanks

    I need a locking gas cap for a 1956 CJ5.

    Someone siphoned all the gas out of my tank last night. Does anyone know where I can get a locking gas cap for a 1956 CJ5? It has a wider cap than modern vehicles.
