Re: New window cable

I have been rewinding the window since the early 80's from my GT with manuel winders to GTV6's with electric windows. Its a bit unconventional in that I use bicycle brake cabels (not the one with the barrel type end but the bullet shaped one, usually for road bicycle). I use two cables starting at t...

Fuel pump and filter.

Has anybody swopped the fuel filter and pump around so that it pumps towards the front, and not towards the back of the car. Thus eliminating bending the pipes through 180 deg to reach the pump and when leaving the filter.
