Is #32 electric, hydraulic, or either?

Of those who have a factory unit (and I'm curious how many this could be), how many would have this issue?

14, 18, 19,25, and 32. 32 is very interesting since so few EHPS units were built and almost nobody has one. Has this "working on one side and not on the other" issue actually been encountered with the EHPS units?

32 of course! I need one of those!!

30, 26, 29, 10 and 9.

The fuel gauge is a big one. Even my new at the time Fiero read a 1/4 higher than it was. Mine now goes way far when it is full so it is obvious it is off. I think they all do this as I have had 3 like this.

Any info is appreciated!!!!!

Jeff... I do not know how you plan to keep track of who votes for what..... I put up a survey that will do it for you, if you are interested. It is simple, and no frills, but will tally everything for you. When you are ready, just take the top 5 most selected.

You can have a look at it here.

Thanks John. We are going to have to manually compile some of it anyway, since we have "paper ballots" from our NIFE meeting.

When is the next "broadcast"? Have you chosen a topic or two? If I'm watching online and you have refreshments, do I have to pay for delivery?
