Check connections for carboning up.

I've had blown fuel pump fuses in the past and found carbon build-up on the connections (including the relays) on my 78 and 79. These were the old style pre-spade type fuses btw. I sand off the carbon from the brass connections. I then carefully and slightly bend back the tangs holding the fuses; and take a thin exacto blade to carefully and slightly open up the pins on the relays. This has gotten me home more than once. I haven't had to use my spares yet. You want to save those towing trips for a real break down.

cheers,

mark
