Saturday night Bart rolled it down the hill and we pushed it into the garage, lit a fire and put some dry gas in. On Sunday morning it started right up. The fittings on the gas filter where beyond saving so a universal filter (thanks Dan) was cobbed in. The truck fired right up and was moved outside to run for a while. It was a short while !! Muffler, pipes and an in-line fuel pump were purchased.
"Muffler clamps are only to hold the pipes in place
until they rust together".
Got ready to do a fuel pressure check and remembered that no oil was showing on the dipstick. Hmmm, oil pressure when it first starts, warms up a little, oil pressure drops, the computer senses no oil pressure and kills the engine ? Put 2.5 quarts of oil in it, backed it out to let it run. Wishful thinking ... ? I had to leave, we'll see.
Holy Shit !!!
The the thing ran for an hour.
Take it away Bart !!!
