Default 73 SD T/A survivor

We had the pleasure of doing some perseveration work on this nice original paint 73 Trans Am, it had been undercoated and that really saved the factory finish.

Nice original car. Just an FYI. The circled area is the recalled pot-metal valve that connected the fuel and vapor line feeds to the fuel pump and its vapor line.

It was recalled early in 1973 because the castings would crack and then all the fuel would be siphoned from the tank, directly underneath the car. Imagine 18 gallons of gas in your garage when you went to start it the next day.

It actually looks like the casting is seeping in your photo.

This would be a perfect item to do a metal 3-D printed version of because it is not safe to retain it on the car any more.

It was officially called a fuel accumulator and the nipples were a weak part of the casting and would break off easily.

Wish there was someone in my area (Oakdale CA) that did this type of work. Seems like everyone around here is more into the chop cut rebuild thing. Needless to say.. I have trust issues.
