We took an SPL meter with us shopping for a new bed for the guest room today. On the interstate, it's pretty consistent: 95 to 100 db. No radio. (Can't hear it anyway)

I replaced my fuel pump, but it turns out that's not the problem.

 

My truck wouldn't start and I looked and no gas in the carb thru the sightglass. I pulled the line off the fuel pump and no fuel coming out when I cranked it.

 

I took the pump apart and nothing's torn, I can't tell if the check valves work ok though.

 

I had a new pump, it looks like carnival prize quality but whatever. Stuck it in and still no fuel coming out of it.

 

I think something wrong with line from tank to pump. Otherwise could be with cam actuation, but that seems less likely.

Last Monday, I swapped out the new failed alternator for a "new" one (reman unfortunately) on my KA24e swap 620 since nobody seems to carry new parts anymore

I hauled like 1600 lbs of retaining wall blocks (conservative estimate) in my 720, I'm always amazed with what that truck can do, punches so far above it's weight.

Scared my truck into fixing itself, was told front turn signals were not working, when the truck saw me coming with toolbox and power tools, the signals started working fine :thumbup:

Today I swapped out that ^ alternator....what the flying fuck!!!!!

 

I spent hours going through my entire harness looking for the cause of the alternator not charging, found nothing, pulled it, took it to auto parts store to get it tested.....failed....got another "new one" will see how long this one lasts....this is really upsetting.

I usually burn good first of the summer and then after that I am ok.  I am talking on my face I do not go shirt less, I have one of those bodies that is better covered so I do not offend the pretty girls as much!  LOL

Picked up a free camper shell. No leaks, no rip in the screens and the handle locks.

I hope to adjust my Ebrake cable, take 5 more tube of silicon and seal the motor up for water forging, and see if I can High Mount my alternator.
