Been fighting this truck for 2 months trying to get it started, ( damn diesel junk), anyway from what I can trace down it looks like the electric transfer pump is out. -- It is mounted under the cab, inside the frame rail, ( lovely place amonst the salt crap), and after some research I find it has the stupid "snap connectors" on the hoses going to it.--- well it takes a special tool to remove them, and I doubt that they will budge!--- Looks like a lot of dirt hanging under there like maybe small fuel leak ?
Tried to get a guy to fix it,---That was 2 weeks ago, never heard for him so I assume he don't want to mess with it either. I need some ideas of how to deal with these stupid fittings!-- I watched a video on changing one, but that guy had the special tool that I don't have and he didn't do a nasty pump. thanks ; sonny

I tangled with the fittings on a 84 crown vic one time!--I said never again! lol!! I didn't check about getting a tool that fits the fittings, might have to break down and tear into it myself, since nobody else wants to do it for me.Thanks; sonny

Well ,I took off the thing under the cab, inside the frame like they said and looked up the part # AND--- well that stupid piece is only the tank switch valve!!---After more tracking, now they say it could be on right side just ahead of the starter,--NOT on this one!---next location possible was in tank!--- Not sure I want to empty the tank and try taking that sucker off!---Not a 1 man job and I have to work by myself.
Next idea they came up with was that it has a 2 stage mechanical pump in the valley UNDER the turbo. YA take turbo and pedestal off to change that sucker IF its the problem child!---Mine looks like a single stage pump.--- anyway I am getting no where on this POS! thanks; sonny

I know a lot about a lot of things BUT I still have a lot to learn.
Life is what you make of it. So, why not make a working machine to make it easier.

Actually the main problem is that morph. 7.3 POS diesel that Ford put in there!---Truck itself is decent. -- I used to be all GM trucks, but they got scarce and out of my price range, so I ended up with Fords. Had some really good ones over the years, all gas models. This is the first (and last), diesel of any brand for me!--Turned down a great deal on a Chevy 1- ton just because it too was diesel. Don't think they are any better than 7.3 either.
