Is that going to be a veggie burner or a 10sec car?

ive got no plans to convert it to veggie...and itll never be a 10second car...
for now it wont IDLE let alone RUN for 10 seconds !

its got a fuel delivery issue....just this mornin' as i was drivin' it 'round our
beltway 8...85/90 i was thinking MAN this thing is some kinda running good...
SMOOTH too....then it died :damnit aint that always the way it happens :haha

i got it off beltway 8 and got it into a bank parking lot...luckily the wife
wasnt working today and she came and got me...im not much for working
on a car or truck in a parking lot <if i dont have to> so i ran, got the trailer
and pulled the car home...where i have tools and :happymugs

If i had to bet, im thinkin' its got algae in the tank...the primary fuel filter
had some crap in it...i changed it and the large secondary filter...and
damm if i didnt loose the prime while doin' it :bang:

its got a MANUAL HAND pump on the thing...like a mini bicycle pump...
pump it 10 or so times and it should be fine...but the damm HAND PUMP
is LEAKING :roflol: :kick

it sat too long, this past summer...between the painter and my travel schedule
im sure its got the funk in the tank ! its a low mileage (150k) car anyway...

soon as i pull the in tank pick up, ill know what it is !

and btw NO one better be *****in' about parts for their 6.0L....just the THOUGHT
of having to make a trip to the parts counter for an 84 benz will make a grown
man CRY !

besides i got to TOW something today....now i can go over the trailer and make
sure its ok TOO !
