My Other 03 Matrix
Well she was laying down and as usual it wound up being plugged filters in the ole' Keihins.
Anybody know what that damn white looking crap actually is??
It looks like fiberglass cloth unraveled.
I decided to change the fuel line and broke the return line nipple off the sending unit while cutting the otiker clamp.
Anybody have a crapy or bad sending unit they'll sell the pick up from?
I just need the sectiion that pulls out of the sender where the fuel and return lines attach.

Interesting, they drive me crazy. What's odd is I never find them in Conrad's SLTX or his Hurricane (standard fuel) so always tended to think it had something to do with the race fuel.I just put a new Polaris filter and hoses in it so I might try the Doo units next time around.Although does that mean the Doo filters catch the "strings" and will the engine just lay down as it does when the filters are plugged in the carbs? Real nice indicator that I'd hate to give up...

Al,you need just the nipple that fits into the grommet? Post a pix if you can,I may have a extra from the 150 sender top left over,I think they may be the same.

Is it possible that the fibers are the filter itself? I know that C-12 reacts different than regular gas on some plastics and rubber products.
