okay, so i dropped the money on a fuel pump, i've been told that the codes the motor is throwing means its running to lean, and its loosing lots of power.

so, fuel filter and pump great right?

$175 later, something is still broke because the fuel pump bracket the hoses on it we're rusty as shit and i fucking broke them... i also broke 4 of the 6 bolts off that hold the fucking tank in and i broke 3 of the bolts holding the skid plate on.... just not my day today at all.... *sigh*

tonight is my birthday party though, so i won't remember today :D

just ranting a little, sorry.


in good news, i start my new job monday at 10 am at the good year place in comstock park on alpine. :D they start at like 7.50 an hour, i hope i can use the tire machine's for free and get a huge discount.... hoping. who knows.

Happy b-day man,
What type of vehicle?

Im right down the street from alpine, well sort of im about 2 miles east of the comstock vitalies. good to know some fellow GL4x4's in the n-hood.

btw if you get to use the tire machine for free you should hook me up and load my 33" x 12.5" claws on my 15" x 10" rims, if not cool. find out how much it cost there (discount said 80$ -lame-) and i will come up there and say whats up.

Yeah, my pump module developed a leak on one of those hard lines where it come out, too.

You have 3 options:

1) Buy a new one, they are $$$$$

2) Find a used one.

3) Repair it. Thats what I did. I cut off the old tube on both sides, and drilled out the hole a little bigger. I ran some larger hard line in through the hole and bent it to match the factory piece. I flared it so the hose would stay in placed. The other side I used flare fittings to connect to my other hard line. I sanded it very coursely, and used JB weld on both sides to seal that piece in there.

I had tried brazing it, but it was too much heat for the bits of rubber and the wiring connections in the plate (I had a scrap spare one to try it on first.).

Its worked fine for me since I did it.

Also, replace all of those screws with hex head stainless cap screws or hex bolts.

Good luck with that. Cant say ive had that problem. If it helps my 350 swap is being the biggest pain in the butt. Finally got it all mounted today though, motor, trans, and case just have to figure out a cross member for the case.
Good luck

well, i already replaced the screws with hex head screws.
another $136 will probably be fine, not sure lol. poker rob, if i can do mounting balancing for free, i'll definatally hook you up man.
yeah i was in yorkcreek last night. a few of my friends live there, i should have drank more but didn't. oh well.

the screws i pulled off the old peice i didn't even know they we're screws at first, i thought they we're bolts that we're all rounded off, i took half of them out with a 7mm socket. heh heh, the rest i twisted out with a pair of vice grips.

the line on mine is really rusty, i already tried to repair it with some JB weld putty and it didn't work so well. leaked like a siv...

thanks for the help guys, this is a dealer only item isn't it?

i checked with the asshole at the stealership today, he couldn't tell me if he had one in stock because i didn't have a VIN... i was like WTF do you need to know about the truck, i know pretty much everything he insisted he needed a vin. i've tried to deal with this guy before and he's an asshole.
