It has a slightly better fuel flow as reported here in the forum
I ended up buying the 158 like you suggested. Just replaced it, bled the fuel system and did the t-valve test again like you described. Last time it ran for 11 seconds and then died, this time it ran f or 22 seconds before it died. Still no fuel came out of the T-valve though. Next step will be dropping the tank and replacing the 'sock'.

Verify you have 12v. electrical power going to the lift pump.
I would remove the FFM, clean it and then blow some compressed air through the water in fuel drain line, with the T valve open, to clear any possible blockage.

If you replace the tank sock, only use AC/Delco #TS 1012

Thanks, I do indeed have 12v, measured this before.
Will do these steps next. Truck is in lockup until Februari so can't do a testdrive unfortunately.

1 more season of salt aint gonna do anymore damage than already done - besides if that things a 4x4 its more fun in the snow!

I drove CJ5 jeeps for 30+ years...the absolute funnest road vehicle in the snow ever! But these Big Old Chevys are snow eating machines in 4x4 mode go have some fun!

Haha I feel you man, but I don?t think we?re getting any snow this year.. And if we get any it?s only a few inches at most. On top of that my country is full of people that feel the need to be bitching against one another, so if I go snowing with the thing I probably won?t even last 10 minutes before cops show up because some asshole called them (this literally happened last year when I took my Chevy Van snowing on an empty parking lot). On top of that I pay a rediculous sum of ?230 (to be raised to ?255 in 2018) (around $280) a MONTH in road taxes. Hate my country and it?s people haha! So yeah I really need these few months to save some cash to be able to get the lift installed before spring. Bought an old beater which I could always take snowing, that is if we get any haha

Took the truck out of lockup since my beater winter-car died. The fuel problem seems to be gone! Nevertheless I will clean out the fuel tank/lines in the Spring.
Ordered new brake-discs and pads to solve the 'jerking' while braking. Had the exact same prob on my Chevy Van and new discs solved it. The rotors on these vehicles seem to bend pretty quick.. I also ordered something fun which hopefully will come in next Saturday as well as the rotors and pads.

When all is installed I'm gonna have to start looking for a shop that is able to do a proper alignment, since the truck pulls to the right when driving, and to the left when applying the brakes.

The lift kit might take longer than expected since I'm having difficulties transporting it, and I refuse to pay an additional 1k on taxes and import rights. So I think I will start with some towing mirrors and additional lights instead.
Also unfortunately cracked my right-rear fender, backed up into a pole I couldn't see, so gonna have to fix that too in Spring..

Move over to Eastern Montana. Not many people and We all are snow crazy.
Those road taxes You have are insane, here the road tax is made up in the price of fuel, not any wheres near as much as You are paying.

Man, I wish.. If one day I get the opportunity and funds to move I won't hesitate a second. Road taxes are beyond insane here indeed. Not to mention that gas and Diesel are probably twice as expensive here as well, $5,55 a gallon for diesel, and $7,20 a gallon of Gas..

Wow, what a difference haha! Unreal!
So against all odds, we got snow yesterday! And quite a bit for our standards. And I have to admit you all are right, this thing is a beast in the snow! In 2wd itís almost impossible not to slide, yet in 4wd, damn what a grip compared to other cars! This thing just sticks to the road. But when you hit the accelerator good in 4wd this thing drifts like crazy, and pretty easy to control too! Had some crazy fun yesterday haha now letís hope no one called the cops on me. I did notice that my fuel problem is still there tho when drifting, it asks for alot of fuel and if I keep doing donuts it dies down due to lack of fuel.. oh well was gonna drop the tank anyway.
