I took my Devil X out of purgatory today to give it a wash job. That meant moving it a mere 50 ft. During that time, I smelled gas from the engine compartment and found it leaking at the fuel filter again. The hose was tight. In the meantime, after I popped the engine lid, the latch didn't retract and the door slammed against it and bent it. Is this car possessed or what? I went to Advance Auto and got a new fuel filter and found the rubber "shocks" that the mounting stud goes into are shot. Where would I find these or do you have any idea of what to use? I'll have to replace a stud since one seems to be broken.

For me, every time that the latch releases have stopped retracting properly, it's been a sign that the cable is about to break or bind enough to stop working. You know, we all know, that this will happen at the worst possible time - the only reason it hasn't happened yet is that a sufficiently bad time hasn't happened yet.

It's easy enough to misinstall them with enough slack that the latches don't retract; but if they were working properly and stop doing so, something that used to be right no longer is.

Good thought Eric. Does this mean I can actually fix something on this car before it completely goes south? Inspirational! BTW, I see you're a fellow North Carolinian. Would you consider bringing your X to the Concourse show in Winston Salem in September? We'll have a drive to VIR to play on a Friday, the show on Saturday and a cruise through the Blue Ridge Mountains on Sunday. It promises to be a great time.

... although if what you have a devil car, what I have is a devil calendar
