Western GPR done

Just got done doing my Western GPR. Took a little modification of the bracket, but nothing too in depth. Had to cut it all the way back to the replay housing and trimmed a little of the grommet that pushed up against it. Could only get 1 nut to go back on, but both studs are all the way through it. Tossed a little anti-seize (never-seize) on the terminals to give a little extra protection...I also do this to my batteries.
One of the pics has a side by side of the new installed and old one on top of my fuel bowl.
Any idea how to edit my signature BTW?

Re: Western GPR done

Re: Western GPR done

The most embarrassing part is I checked it last week and knew it was bad. I mixed them up then too. Made a mental note which one it was and STILL messed up lol
