I talked to the seller today, now I feel a little silly. He says the plugged line was for an extra fuel tank he used to have in the trunk. He says he could go 1000 miles without a fillup with the extra tank which has since been removed.
I will need to replace the mast on the radio ant. If I can negotiate the right price, I hope to pick her up this week.
Anyone have any ideas on the transmission delay? The archives are not clear on this one.
