    Hi Everyone,
    I came across this forum when I was looking for info to change the fuel pump on my 78 Spitfire.
    My first car that I bought was a 75 Spitfire. My Dad said I couldn't afford the parts AND the mechanic so I had to learn to work on it myself. That car was an education! I even pulled the engine and put in a new clutch. My heart was broken when I found the frame had rusted through. I had a parts catalog along with some of my books when I was at class in college and ran into a girl that was trying to get rid of a 78 Spitfire. The price was right plus I had a parts car. Life was good. I ended up driving them for a combined 10 years. Eventually, the differential went out and I was about to start a family. It wasn't practical and I couldn't get a car seat in it. Fast forward almost 30 years and I bought another 78 Spitfire while my knees still work. I do as much work as my back will allow and my Dad sure was right about the mechanic! I look forward to getting to know fellow LBC devotees and hope to gain from their knowledge.
    Cheers,
    Beth Johnson
