    Re: Fuel pump inertia cutoff switch

    That's a nice installation and convenient location Steve. I'm curious to learn if your switch will deploy on bumpy roads. I have yet to install mine but I have some concerns while knocking it about...

    The reduced 7/16 in. open end is a great solution for these somewhat inaccessible nuts. A flapper disk might do the job in grinding it down. I'm stoked in getting seals stacked. Thanks for sharing...
