Now for the fun... I bought IPD's in tank pump upgrade kit and went to install it...



I brushed a few cobwebs outta the way before I took a picture. I felt like Indiana Jones in the Temple of Doom!

Turns out that bung nut is a goner, so I scraped and vaccumed the rust the best I could, and soaked the s#!t out of it with PB blaster. Ordered new bung nut, and in the meantime I need to empty the tank which is a prerequisite for replacing the in tank pump.

When I replaced the inline pump, the vehicle had sat for about 2 years with a half tank of old fuel. I tried topping it off with 91 and adding techron fuel system cleaner just to get things going again, but the cavitation of my inline pump is screaming at me to replace the in tank pump. It sounds like an angry swarm of hornets in a coffee can!

Drove Sweedish roulette to work today and got 4 new tires on the hydras. I got "Road Hugger GTP 205/50/R16" as it was in stock and just over a C note a tire. Better than the old rubber that was on there, my buddy dug them out from under a redwood tree IIRC and the 225's up front rubbed when turning and the 215's in the rear were chafing the spring seat and the strut nut on the drivers side because I don't have an adjustable panhard bar yet.

Photobucket sucks. Wow.

Anyway, I got the rusty cancerous bung nut off my fuel tank, and did the in tank pump replacement this morning. The tubing between the pump to the hard line was ruptured, so I'm sure it was just a fountain spraying and it makes sense why the inline pump was cavitating so much. Putting all that stuff back through the fuel tank hole was a fun challenge in geometry in itself. It was tough wriggling that back in there!

Pretty sure it's a solid runner again, time to daily drive it for a week and see how it goes.
