mep-802a mep-803a and income taxes - a fix for the fuel shutoff solenoid

In our household income tax season is a time for gnashing of teeth.

However, whilst working on the 2014 tax return(?) I noticed the hanging folder and saw something that wasn't there, but could be created.

It is that stiff piece of metal that interfaces between the fuel solenoid and the fuel shutoff valve. If one takes the hanging folder apart and combines the two stiff metal pieces from the folder he can create a substitute piece for the solenoid / fuel valve interface. Now it will take a little grinding of the strip to extend the length of the opening, but the concept is there and should work fine!

I took a couple of pictures of the new?? interface strip. Haven't yet assembled it, but I think it should work wonderfully.

Now back to the taxes.......
