UPDATE: Dropped in a fuel pump today and got to get real up close and personal with her undercarriage (heh heh!). It was bad, but nit as bad as I thought. I was able to grind some areas around the tank well down to bare metal, prime and undercoat. I did this because I’ll be DAMNED if I’ll ever do that job again! Ford engineers really get the Blue Falcon award for that fuel pump location and how you have to install a new one. I will not be repeating that task. Anywho, I finished up the install, primed the system for about 10 sec and she started up on the second try! Woo hoo! It’s alive! Buuuut my joy soon turned to bitter disappointment because all of the vehicles ills were laid bare. I’ll spare the horrid details but bottom line, it’s a parts vehicle. Allow me to elaborate. - Exhaust leak, pre cat. Puffing noise, could be a exhaust manifold gasket or hole. - Brakes - this is the worst. Feels like at least one caliper is dragging and brake warning light is on. When under the truck I noticed a hacked job on the left rear brake line. Instead of purchasing a proper fabricated replacement, Joe Backyard made a homebuild line and routed it terribly. Plus the repair was leaking near the rear brake. Alo, he left the old line still on the truck! - Slight low end knock - it quieted down a bit after it warmed up but it was still there. - Rough idle after warmUp - could be bad gas, clogged injectors from sitting, could be a bad plug. Not sure but wluld be a pita to run down. - and don’t forget the rear frame being a mess. add all this up and it Just isn’t financially viable so it’s probably going to be a parts car. Very disappointed right now.
