    Weird Fuel pressure issue…

    I’m questioning going out to the garage to fire up the truck tonight, not because I don’t think it’ll start, it’s because it’s only -1 outside at only 7:36pm, AND my truck did NOT come with a heater when I bought it HAHA.(Which reminds me, I need to find a cheap one lol)

    Weird Fuel pressure issue…

    I removed the original dead pump initially when installed my in line pump, so it has been out for awhile. I had made a custom fuel pick up inside the tank, all that is still good. I updated an old post, but here it is again… Here is my current fuel setup… Tank -> pick up tube -> wix...

    Weird Fuel pressure issue…

    Here’s a summary… I’ll begin by saying my truck was stalling about every 1mins-4mins. I noticed on my secondary fuel pressure gauge that I was losing fuel pressure causing it to stall. To me the truck was starving for fuel. I had changed filters a handful of times with no luck. I decided to...

    40K are you kidding me??

    With the latest publicity and internet fame of MV’s from the guys at Diesel Brothers and all their recovery videos, it’s no wonder everyone now wants one and prices are going up! Check out Heavy D and all his MV toys!

    Weird Fuel pressure issue…

    As of last night it was running great, even at 10 degrees outside haha By the time I let it warm up, then cruising around our farm field’s, to taking it around the block, it was a solid 35-40mins of run time, never once a hiccup. The longest it would ever run good before, was about 1-4 mins then...

    Fitting size?

    Sorry I must be misunderstanding, I want to remove the original fitting and copper all together. Then replace with a fitting that adapts from that 1/2” thread to 1/2” compression so I can connect my brand new plastic lines I appreciate the info, I’ll hunt down what I need from there

    Fitting size?

    Does anyone know off the top of their head what size and pitch, or what the fitting is that’s on the fuel outlet on top of the tank? It’s a flare fitting originally, but I’m at work and can’t actually size the female side. I’d like to find a fitting to screw into it other than the original...

    Weird Fuel pressure issue…

    I am now thinking the pump may be the issue. I have found two sources for info on the Airtex E8131. A 2016 publication on their site states 10-14 psi and 35GPH. Now their site with an updated 2022 publication states 9-14psi and 20GPH. hmmm. I have a new Carter pump coming to try out. 6-8psi...

    Yikes!

    I’ve had failures on just about anything I’ve owned. Weather it be my work boots, my 2019 Chevy, or a dozer at work. At this point in time all you can do is be thankful there was no loss of life. Fix it and keep on keep’n on. IF it would happen again, then I would be suspect of either the...

    M35a2 lift pump

    I appreciate everyone, I was really really hoping to find someone private that was looking to off load one for the prices they went for a few years back. I was even told to contact Olympic as they had them for roughly $275 about 5yrs ago, we’ll now they are over $400. Ugh. I’ll keep searching...

    Weird Fuel pressure issue…

    Well I installed the AMBAC kit and unfortunately it didn’t help. I’ll check all three valves again. Hard for me to believe that two boost pumps have the same issues, possible, but hard to imagine both are bad. I used a normal fuel resistant gasket type sealer. I barely even put a film on. I...

    Weird Fuel pressure issue…

    Negative. Still lost pressure after a few minutes of running. It would stay running while idling with zero pressure and die with the slightest throttle increase. Inline pump took about 45secs to regain prime. During this time it took to prime, I also had the bleeder on top of my secondaries...

    Weird Fuel pressure issue…

    Got a chance about 15mins ago to put the newly “rebuilt” boost pump on, I used AMBAC kt9062 like mentioned above. I was given two fiber washers in my pack. Did I get lucky? Or is there another one hiding somewhere?? Haha Getting ready to fire the truck up in a few minutes.

    Weird Fuel pressure issue…

    So last night I pulled apart my original boost pump that I removed from the truck. There was NO fiber washer/gasket inside between the plug and valve, or anywhere for that matter. Im guessing those disintegrate over time? The o-ring on the piston plug was there and intact. Today is in the upper...

    Why or Why not to buy a SEE Small Equipment Excavator?

    I think that is default on posting unless changed; probably just a mistake
