Damn!  Never saw that, but I have not looked in many fuel cells, either!  good catch!  That will do it for sure!

A lot of broken parts does not make you a racer; it makes you a slow learner.

Posting for Brad. Same thing happened to my father in laws fuel cell in his Galaxie. We pulled the pump apart and there was foam debris on the inlet side of the pump.

Thanks for posting Jason. They removed the fuel cell and pulled all the foam out.

Dan brought it up from Florida about 6 weeks ago. It had been sitting in storage for 2 years. The race gas in it deteriorated the foam. It was a nut and bolt restoration... and built professionally for racing in a certain class. You can see a weight box in front of the fuel cell. I'm hoping to convince Dan to race it in the Nostalgia class at SMP with me. Nostalgia is 1975 and older.
