I'd suspect you'll want to save up and purchase a partial container ship the lift kit etc all together.

Maybe check with the place you bought the truck from - see if they get routine parts shipped over in a container from the states..maybe you can piggy back on one of theirs?
Haha trust me if i'd have the chance to move to the USA I wouldn't hesitate

That might be an idea, depends on the ETA obviously. Thanks for the suggestion

So a pretty ****ty problem occurred yesterday. When pulling up on the main road the truck began stuttering around 50 mp/h when I was accelerating.
Further investigated the problem and it seems when I give it about 3/4 of throttle for a good amount of time, it begins to sputter after say 10 seconds or so. When I floor it from a standstill or moving it runs fine, no stuttering at all. So it only stutters when giving it a lot of throttle for a good amount of time. No black smoke whatsoever, so I instantly thought about lack of fuel.

Checked the fuel filter, doesn't look bad, put it back in and the problem was gone... for a day. I already ordered a new filter today just to be sure but I'm afraid it was just coincidence.
Also jumped the lift pump which works fine and fulls up the filter pretty quick.
Checked the lift pump relay, which has power. Only one thing I'm a little bit concerned about. When I crank it the relay gets power on the 2nd power input, which is good, however I'm pretty sure when I put the truck on ignition it should get a 2 second 'crank' on the power input, which it doesn't. Also I do not hear the fuel pump run for a few seconds when put on ignition.

Is this normal or could this be my problem?

Check or replace the screen manager down inside of the bottom of the FFM.

That small screen is often forgotten about.

Try running with the fuel cap loose and see if anything changes

Could do a lift pump test. But probably best after checking filter condition. Should be able to run truck at idle for 30+ seconds with drain valve open. Any stuttering and the lift pump is weak, not able to supply ample fuel for all conditions.

Where is the drain valve located? Is it the round thing on top of the fuel filter?

The round thing on the fuel filter is called the bleed cap.
It allows you to remove air from the filter manager

The T Valve is located up by the oil filler tube on the front of the engine

..
it's the brass valve with a skinny silver handle. the fuel line runs from the bottom of the FFM. you can trace it if it's not in the usual spot. it's always hard to open by hand. i usually replace it with a newer valve.
you might want to consider moving the FFM to the fender. will make maintenance easier, esp leaks, which you will have eventually.

Seeing as Im an Exported Ductchman m'self (came to Canada in '57) ...I just had to see what kind of a loon would buy a 2500/3500 Dually in Holland...LOL.! AWESOME..!!

My question is this...where the hell do ya park it.?? Seems to me the biggest vehicle on the roads there is a Smart Car...

Anyway - Very Cool...I can just see the other 15 million other loons (am one myself of course), wondering the same thing as you drive by.!! Most have likely never seen such a beast.

Not knowing much about the 6.2/6.5 Motors although I did have company 93 6.2...I'll stay outa this thread and just watch..!

Cheers, (tot zeins) - my written dutch is lousy as is my verbal...was 5 when we left.

Hi Theo,

That is awesome! What a small world we live in haha.
Parking is a b*tch sometimes, but it keeps things interesting. The people watching with open mouths when i squeeze my bigass truck into the tiniest parking spot at the grocery store never gets old!
A lot of times I have to park over the curb because the parking spaces are too short, so my entire hood sticks out. At the spot where I park my truck at home the curb has sunk into the ground a good 3" from me driving up and down it If i keep it up there will be no curb left at the end of the year!


Okay so I changed my diesel filter today and put a new lift pump relay in, my old one has been tampered with (lids broken off).
The problem SEEMS to be gone so far! But I suspect the lift pump being weak, or a clogged filter in the fuel tank itself. When I opened up the bleeder screw on top of the diesel filter, and jumped my lift pump, it did a few sputters and started dripping out, not a lot of pressure at all if you ask me.
So just to be sure I ordered a new lift pump today, so when the problem comes back I can replace it and test the pressure again. Was gonna detach the pump from the line coming from my tank and supply diesel from an external container and check the pressure again, just to rule out the pump, but I don't really wanna touch it now the problem seems to be gone.

Thanks for all the tips guys you helped out a lot!
