That's been my thinking of why i haven't been able to draw fuel, that and partly kinked clear line that when it gets some draw, it kinks up tight.

Anyway, if the starter warranty is still good great. If not I'll see if Dave can give me a tutorial on starter re-building.
direct drive or Gear reduction?

Direct drive's are cake to rebuild.

Carefully scrape the loose stuff off, scuff with 400 then 600 and re shoot her or just leave it, hot rod guys are spending big buck for fake patina and your getting it for free!

Well she's in the driveway, and sticking into the sidewalk to boot. She is so clean it's almost unbelievable. Don't worry tho I'll take care of that soon. I drove about 200kms today, 120miles and it was pretty good. Everything is tight. Only real problem was that it never got up to full heat and there wasn't a lot of heat coming out of the heater. New t-stat coming soon. Pix to come tomorrow. Oh, did i mention, not only does it have a radio, it has a CD player. I own a CD...I think
Pics? We need pics bad. Turbo guys run up to smacks and take some pics:D

Did this work?

I don't know what I'm doing. I have a photobucket album but don't know how to attach. Any one?

In your album, in thumbnail view hover your mouse over the pic... when the menu pops up click on the "Direct link" it will say copied then go to the post and click on the "Insert image" button and then right click and paste.

Ok that's as much as I can figure out to do today. I ended up just erasing the numbers and putting in different ones in the paste cause it kept coming up the same. I'll try taking more pix with less glare and maybe try to figure out this picture posting stuff

You can see the 2 cracks in the dash. not perfect but about the best I've seen. The seat has 2 small tears, seperations really. It looks like theres a tear in that pic of the seat but it's a wrinkle. 2 new 875 cca batteries, what looks like a new brake master cylinder (the brakes are real firm but not grabby) and 4 near new tires. I would guess they have about 5000kms, 3000miles. My wife and kids even said she thought it was nice. now that's impressive.

Thanks legend. It is very close to my dream truck. If it was 3 years younger it would be e-test exempt and it would be better with a standard, but I really can't complain. Cleanest most rust free truck I've ever owned

That looks really good Sean, I think I already see a baby-seat in the back.....dual purpose, tough enough to work, large enough for the family. Real clean all around, nice truck:thumb:

Exactly the reason I've wanted a 3+3. Definitly not for the parrallel parking abilities. I was trying to back into a parking space yesterday, and it wasn't going to be easy. That extra 3' makes a difference. This is going to take some figuring, or parking space hunting. The kids were pretty happy to be driving in it yesterday, at least as happy as in my wifes malibu. Also great for keeping tools in and locked up when not in use.

I think it may be time for a "new truck" thread. With LOTS and LOTs of pics!

That is a good looking truck!

That's an awesome truck. Before I found my Suburban that was exactly what I was looking for. Finding one with a diesel is extremely rare as the gas ones are hard enough to come by as-is.

Precisely. That's why i didn't dicker about the price. i may have been able to get them down a few hundred but i may also have lost it. I missed out last year, I wasn't going to again. Looking at the vehicle history package, besides the guys I bought it from and a few dealers who owned it for a few months as trade in, each owner has had it close to 5 years and one for over 10. Right now I know of 2 other 3+3's for sale, both with 350's both in not in near as good shape and both about the same price I paid. I got everything I wanted.

Perhaps an old rag that was placed in the filler tube to take the place of a fuel cap. A buddy of mine had a similar problem with is truck. The rag would cover the pick up tube & cause fuel starvation. Just a suggestion, without reading the entire thread. It's late, & almost bedtime, not enough time for me to read the entire thread tonight.
