Even at fill up I only put in 16 gallons, so with mine, I don't belive the new pickup is reaching bottom
That's a really good point. I probably won't let it get past 1/4 of a tank; although I'm sure I'll get ballsy one day and see where the true empty mark is.

No problem. Carry your 1 gal Blitz can full of gas and run it out. Then you'll know. Pour a little gas down the carb to restart it.

Glad you fixed it.

I am having the same issue with my Oil Pressure reading max on factory gauge when I am giving it gas and then droping down to middle or lower on gauge when at idle. I see that GuyPatterson fixed this problem. Does anyone know what he did or how to fix it?

Thanks,

My oil pressure gauge is also pegged at Max no matter what when the engine is running. Curious to know what the fix was for the original poster as well.
