I took it for a quick spin, and changing the fuel filter eliminated the problem I was having with poor fuel delivery, which was causing chugging at low throttle input and low rpm combinations.

Unless your coffee is about as black as straight grounds, then yes, it was.

And that stupid bolt is still there, stuck and stripped. For all I care it will stay there until it gets melted away for scrap along with the body.
