What's the problem on dad's truck?


It's sucking air into the fuel system somewhere. At first I thought it was the fuel pickup in the tank as all the 99 to 2003 F series Diesels have an issue with the plastic pickup deteriorating around 200,000 miles. So I pulled the bed, it's quicker and easier the dropping the tank. Replaced the pickup even though it didn't look bad and took apart the sending unit to clean the filter screens. Found a little trash in them, but no real issues. I also replaced the transfer pump on the frame rail and that didn't make any difference, still getting air bubbles in the fuel filter bowel. So now I will have to break each fuel line quick connection and replace the O-rings in each joint. I'm at wits end on figuring this one out.

How's the new round of chemo going? You've been on my mind recently, just wanted to check in.

I don't know how I missed this update!  If I remember the bag is only temporary so about the time you get a real handle on them they will return you to normal.  Isn't that how it usually works? :smilewink:

 

Hope you have figured out the problem with the truck.

Brian is doing ok, but not up to speed at the moment.  He's also been working on Briley's car, so couple that with being worn down and well, he's just tired.  He also started his new round of chemo Monday, and I'm sure that isn't helping.  Hang in there buddy, it will get better!

OK Guys, Sorry for not checking in but it's been a little tougher this round of Chemo. I'm having a little issue with staying nauseous and not sleeping very well. I also am dealing neuropathy in my hands, mouth from the Chemo. The bag will be on until I get through all of my Chemo treatments, then it will be reversed. Worst part with the bag is I have to sleep on my back and I am having to learn to sleep on my back again as it's been years since I've slept on my back.

 

I did finally get Briley's Denali fixed yesterday after completely dis-assembling  the steering column down to the tilt knuckle to get to the shifter handle mounting bracket. Also had to replace the shifter cable which meant I had to remove the drivers seat to get the carpet up enough to replace the cable. I forgot to take photos of all of it, but it was pretty hard to do with my health issues right now.

 

I still have to get back to the shop and get Dad's truck up and running, maybe tomorrow I can get back to it.

Brian, I hope you get to feeling better soon! Glad you got the Denali fixed. Just don't overdo things yet!

Your doing good Buddy, I don't think I could deal with all the health issues and then deal with repairing the trucks as well.  Hope you can take some time to rest up.

Thanks for the update, Brian. I know you aren't the type to slow down, but just remember all the people who rely on you to get things done, need you to heal so you can keep getting it done. Prayers continue from here, looking forward to our next meeting!

Brian, please take it easy as you possibly can. Lots of road to travel yet, and wearing yourself down will bring you down mentally as well. In the end it will be so worthwhile and seem like it didn't take that long. Prayers sent EVERY day!

As Daniel said, you better take it easy Brian or it is going to take forever before you feel like yourself again. Now is not the time to be pushing yourself to the limit. Your Dad's truck can wait. Take a couple of days off for yourself.

This is an excellent time to teach Briley how to fix Dad's truck. You just instruct her!

Glad to hear you're doing okay. Try to take it easy, I know that's not easy, just a little bit helps though. Tom
