  1. Edit: crossed the fuel hoses at the pump.. all good now other that the sputtering and missing. Guessing from the bad fuel.. Truck won't start. Fuel related. I prematurely thought it was my junkyard pump going out since my tank is slight rusty. Pulled the pump to see that the pre-filter broke off. Swapped in a new pump and nada. So assumed that the fuel filter is clogged. Pulled the filter and it was dry. Disconnected the line and placed it in a bottle and primed the pump. I hear it prime but nothing is coming out... I'm sure I connected fuel lines back correctly. What am I missing? I turn the ignition on, I hear pump prime and stop. Turn off the key and I hear a click from a relay seconds later.
  2. You can try a bolt extractor for rounded heads or weld an open end wrench to it.
  3. Yep. Rusty tank from sitting too long. Still trying to find a good tank. Sent from my SM-N960U1 using Tapatalk
  4. Check the small rubber hoses going to the evap canister and the lines going to the fuel pump and tank. You can unplug the door lock timer because it'll try and apply power to the lock actuators if it is malfunctioning. Sent from my SM-N960U1 using Tapatalk
  5. Well, it was a good run. Junkyard pump's filter disintegrated and killed it. Going to pick a new pump motor off Ebay now. Sent from my SM-N960U1 using Tapatalk
  6. Nah. No whirring of the pump Sent from my SM-N960U1 using Tapatalk
  7. I'm thinking my fuel pump died. I could not get it to start. Normal I'd smell fuel from turning it over, but nada.
  8. It's amazing what a little cleaning and paint can do.
  9. Hey Pam! It's been awhile! Did you get rid of the old pathfinder for new one? I've never personally done it nor have I seen what the r50 compressor looks like, but It should be kind of easy to do. I"m not sure if you have room in the engine bay to pull the pulley off though. Generally, you remove a nut the hold the clutch in. pull that off. get a 3 jaw puller thingamabob to pull the pulley off. crossreference the bearing and press the old bearing out.
  10. Was that you that posted pics of the board on facebook?
  11. Make sure your terminals are not corroded along with the wires. It does seem like your starter is failing. Could also be from bathing in oil and mud which kills the starter faster.

    progress is progress!
  13. Felt like painting the last bit of my bumper brackets. I still need to grind a but to clear the radiator support. I have enough squeaking as it is already so I don't need more. I also am prepping for the 90A alternator swap. My 70 Amp pulley doesn't clear the alternator and will require me to shave the casing or the pulley where it necks down. I'll have to hold off on getting the 150A in for now. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-N920A using Tapatalk
  14. Welcome back! There's a few old timers here and we even got Mr. Reverse back over here with the closing of 4x4parts forum whenever that was. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-N920A using Tapatalk
