It's too damn hot now. September sounds a lot better. When do the clocks change back?

I'm not sure about the time change, but November might even be better. A lot cooler anyway. That last one was in August I think. Man that was a hot friggin' day.

The SE has injection, so it has an electric fuel pump.

I am supposed to have a pic of the 280SE in the Gallery - this link ought to get you there. (it still has paint in that pic) http://www.peachparts.com/shopforum/vbpicgallery.php?do=big&p=1184
