Gas gauge pegged
After taking two years to do major mods (200 4R, 8.5" Nova posi, Classic Auto A/C, Alum radiator, Hotchkiss susp) to my '68 Camaro I decided to prepare for a road trip. First, I siphoned the old gas out of the tank. There was only about a gallon of old gas in the tank. Still smelled like gasoline. Had not turned to gel or varniish. Second, I poured 4 gal of fresh fuel in the tank. Third, I disconnected the fuel line at the carb and stuck it into a Miller's quart bottle. Poured some gas into the carb and started the engine. Did this a couple of times until I got about a quart and a half of old fuel out of the line. Connected the fuel line to the carb. The engine started right up and ran good. But, the gas gauge is pegged at 3:00, and doesn't move. Is it possible when I siphoned the old fuel out with a garden hose the hose disturbed the fuel level float??
