    Some interior disassembly... Lower bunk 81lbs... ramp between seats 12lbs... Wall padding 6 lbs. Finally getting to that last hose clamp to replace the hose... a pain in the ass! What is this green stuff they used to seal around the filler neck? It is seriously hard.

    There is that yellow Anderson connector that rarely gets noticed. Note that as shipped, it has both plugs. This one does too. I hook my combat crock pot up here.

    I noticed that both ends were on the plug! I made a point of keeping it. The placard for it said 24v 60amps...

    It's a great source of radio power too for the green radio crowd.

    Got a tank in last night... bolts aren't tight but it's in. Gotta love those hoses on the M1010! I cut the an inch longer than the old ones and they still seemed too short.

    Trying to keep moving... I tightened all the bolts on the tank so it's secure. I got the valve installed after finding all the fittings that I needed. On the lines going forward I just straightened them some and bent them closer to the frame rail. Two barbs waiting for the second tank to be installed. Some basic markings on the floor the keep the theme going. Started cleaning the frame before putting the tank in and the underside of the cab. I've had this gauge panel for a while, it might work here...

    While dodging some rain. I got the second tank in place and bolts installed loosely after a test fit and moving the heater fuel line and a wiring harness for the box upwards on the frame. All hoses are on the valve now. I also finished up the filler neck and vent hose on the drivers tank (no pic of vent installed). I'm going to fab a shield for the valve and hoses before she hits the road...

    A quick update and note to self and possibly others... check fuel lines for kinks. DOH!

    I finally added fuel to the tank and starting trying to vacuum fuel up to the new fuel filter. It just wasn't happening! I gave up the other day and decided to regroup. I talked with a friend who is a diesel tech and he said pressurize the tank and it will push up. Easier said than done by ones self. I finally read on another site about putting pressure through the return line at the injection pump. By applying pressure you can find any little leaks. First one was the Ironically at the handle of my valve, snugging up the nut for the seal quickly solved that. Back to adding pressure when I popped one of the small hoses at an injector. Knew something was off and started tracing all lines. It's always the last place you look... both the feed and return were kinked at the tank. That extra inch I put on those lines to help reinstall the tank... bit me. Had to lower the tank, get the lines off, cut the hoses, and reinstall. Triple checked... No kinks! Finally able to bleed fuel up to the injection pump and then cracked the lines on the injectors till they were wet. I tried starting. Ran briefly and stalled, but it started! I had solid fuel at the injection pump and finally went back to the filter. I hooked up the bleeder, and opened it... air, cranked till straight fuel came out. Started again, she was running, and finally settled into an idle. I got out to start check some things when my buddy points under the truck to the puddle... quick sniff diesel. Running off the bell housing... shut her down...drain pan and rags. Double check the line to the injection pump...dry. Valley...wet...now with a light...full of stuff also. Cleaned it all out and started one more time... valley filled in no time.

    The good - It Lives! The bad - injection pump! I knew it was a calculated risk not to send it out but worth a shot! On the upside, bleeding will go faster next time!

    I spoke with Chris at Diesel Care & Performance about my pump and after getting numbers off my pump as well as the part numbers listed in the TM's he discussed with the techs whether an exchange or sending mine in was better. They wanted me to send mine in as it is listed as HD. Is there really a difference? I read on the site here that the HD pumps were supposedly ok with ultra low sulfer diesel because the military uses JP8. I don't know... took pictures of the tag on the pump before sending it, we'll see if the same one comes back.

    Some extra time now for cleaning areas not often seen... maybe a little more painting
