I tested the headlight switch. Every few years it needs to be pulled out and the contacts need to be cleaned. I don't drive the car very much anymore but before I do, I have to check the switch before I take it out at night.
Back in 2004 the switch that came with the kit was a cheesy switch. Silver plastic knob. I don't recall where I got the switch I used.
It was last Sunday, but "here's what I did to my roadster today."
I DROVE IT THOUGH A RIOT IN DOWNTOWN LONG BEACH
I had no idea there was a "march" in town that day. Unfortunately, the peaceful march turned into a riot on my very block. You may have seen it on TV. As I returned from a "Sunday Drive" I drove right into it, and the fastest route to safety was a few more blocks to the apartment parking garage door. (I was on a 1-way street and there was no way to turn around.) Needless to say, I didn't stop for red lights.
I made into the garage and as the metal gate closed behind me there were people carrying pipes and baseball bats. The other car was in a public garage across the street, and fearing it being damaged I took the risk of running across the street and bringing it into the apartment basement garage. It took some work but I was able to squeeze both cars into our corner single parking spot.
Could be the first Cobra to survive a riot! I'm not making a joke of the situation, I was scared sh_tless!

Back story, running a QFT 650SS carb with brand new, just installed Walbro 244 fuel pump. Reason for the EFI fuel pump is I’m considering an aftermarket EFI system so thought having the high pressure fuel pump in tank would save some work later.
Now though, with the pump running I Can only get...
