I have seen no start problems it happened .my car would not start at work today I just filled up and she was not getting gas to the carborater I replace the fuel pump ok, simple ,but still no gas ?? talking to a coworker we replaced the ignition brain and she started , the brain also shuts the fuel pump!! I don’t know if this was a standard system on 1977 chevette? or was done by the builder? Now for my Questoin. Has anyone done something to make the side panals remove easily or maybe hinged like the orignal hood , I don’t want to have, to do this again, but the thought of the master cylender under there and 2 hours to remove and 2 to replace them- WOW !!
