    van woes

    Post by Admin on Tue Jul 31, 2012 3:43 pm

    yes, i'll have gouda with my whine


    thought my carb skills were really bad

    thought the 300 6 was salvage fodder

    looks like the intake gaskets or that one on the bottom plate have gone away

    so it was sitting in the sun, needed to get it in the shade--moved the 1 ton over on it and sprung a gas line leak on the 1 ton--now they are both in the sun---c'mon sundown

    made in the shade

    when i converted from efi to carb, i used what i could of the orig fuel system. that giant canister filter between the hi pressure pump and the fuel reg had rusted a pin hole--it was 5 or 7 yrs old, but i think the ethanol mix helped it along--the pin hole may have been there all along because the fuel pump will stay pumped now, as it had been bleeding off from the git go--that may have contributed to the malfuctioning efi system--if so, 5 good mechanics and 1 okie hayseed never caught it

    There is a big plastic thing you might think is a filter but it isn't. The filter is a common ford style for efi. Just a metal cylinder with a hose in and out.Some are up front, some are closer to the tank.

    this truck has(not currently in use) a cannister(plastic with replaceable element) on the frame rail, near back of driver's door, between the tank and the hi pressure pump, i put a standard electric pump in place of the hi pressure pump--the faulty filter is on the up sweep of the frame at firewall

    she be running like a champ now
