    It sounds to me that you're thinking the needles cause the fuel level to rise when they are inserted into the nozzle? If that's the case, you have to remember that unless you pulled the needles out...

    I've seen plenty of flexible of PCB's but never out of fiberglass/epoxy. Nothing wrong with trying, but I don't think it'll take enough of a set unless it was molded like that originally before the...

    Cool. I've been continuing to think about this and I'm still thinking you need to take a close look at your fusible links. The more I think about it, the more an intermittent connection to the black...

    TomoHawk, The original festoon bulb is what they considered a 31 mm festoon, but that's measured tip to tip, so it's hard to draw any correlations without actual drawings of LED replacements.
