Remember when I said that I hardly ever have trouble with my Ford truck? Yeah!
The fuel pump went out. I suppose that's no biggie, happens to every one. Chevy, Dodge, whatever. Well, who was the dumbie that thought taking the pump off the engine and sticking it in the gas tank under the bed of the truck was a brilliant idea??!! Just take the bed off the truck they said. Just 6 bolts holding it on they said. Only thing is those bolts, which are only T50 Torx by the way, are rusted into one immovable unit. I used a 3/8 breaker bar and snapped the bit off. Then I went and got a air rachet and an impact bit and snapped that off. Then I treated the bolts to trans fluid/acetone and got a 1/2"impact bit and a 4ft. 3/4" breaker bar and snapped that off. On the advice of a truck mechanic, I have gotten a Milwaukee 7" grinder to grind the heads off the bolts. If that snaps the grinder, I'm going to f&@X#g torch the truck. (Don't tell me to drop the tank. It is full of fuel.)
