    Almost every man I knew growing up was a WWII vet. My dad and all his friends were vets. Most of them didn't mind talking about it. None of them said it was good.

    Then I checked the temp gauge, and it doesn't seem to work at all. I put the jumper on the sender and to ground and the gauge doesn't move, so I'm going to have to give a call to KW.

    You know, I might be able to get in there with a cut off bit. It is hard to tell from the photo, but that is worth a look. If you could get a hole in it, an EZ out might bring it out.
