Hopefully I'll get to some tests one night this week and then report back. I'll also put a new fuel filter in it just to eliminate that possibility.

Already converted. Just trying to fire everything back up after replacing a hose. It's definitely leaking. You can watch the gauge drop and it returns to ambient pressure in about 2 minutes.

To what the other's said. The chime box is the largest thing plugged into the fuse panel, at least on a late model. 3" x 3"?

The flapper valve opens on one side by using a bi-metal spring that expands once the exhaust...

1. Sounds like vacuum if it's a high pitched whistle sound.
