Put a rebuild kit in the carburetor today and plugged up all the vacuum hoses that don't go to anything. It runs and stays running! It's bangin' and puffing black smoke so I still need to flush the fuel line. Gonna run some fuel line cleaner, fresh gas, seafoam the intake, and change the oil after that.
Last night I dropped the tank, full of rust, sending unit was all rusty, and the float was replaced with a small aspirin bottle. I flushed the line a few times with an electric pump and some clean gas, then today I ran it with the line hooked to a gas can with fresh premium and a bottle of fuel system cleaner. Did a Seafoam treatment to the intake and got a nice blue smoke show. It looks like the pipe going into the muffler is barely attached and the whole exhaust is shot to shit anyway. I'll take that down and I might try to make my own dual exhaust at home using what I got as a template.

I put a new tank, sender, lines, fuel pump and filter on the Fury just a month ago. I don't regret it one bit as I know I have clean rust free gas. Yes, there is the expense but it will save you time and headaches down the road. You don't have to wonder or worry about bad gas and plugging up the carb.
Height: When in the downward horizontal position, the face of the lamp should just barely be above the hood. Almost touching.
Careful when drilling: There is just enough space, between the windshield glass, and the outside edge of the pillar, to fit the bit into. Try not to scrape the glass, or it will develop into a crack after a while.
* Don't blast a hole straight through everything at once (outside chrome trim - pillar - inside trim). Dismantle the pieces, inside and out, drill the pillar. Realign one side of the trim and mark it from the other side (through the hole). Then do the same with the opposite side, and drill those pieces separately. You can then put it back together, slide the drill bit through everything and give it a couple spins to ream everything at once and make sure it's all good.
