This Ranger bed thing is getting way too easy!
Now it’s back off
Why? You ask? Well…. because something went wrong when I put it on. Her’s how the story goes. I put the bed bad on. Cool. I decided to move the Ranger to a different parking location. Cool. When I get it parked I smell fuel and when I get out I see a pool of fuel dripping from the area of the fuel tank. Not cool!
A quick peek under the bed revealed a major issue at the top of the tank. in the fuel pump area. Damn! So out comes Mr Bed Lifter / engine hoist and off comes the bed. I have it down to a science now. And it didn’t take long for the problem to become apparent. The area of the feed lines, which had been flagged as a potential problem in a earlier post, was spitting fuel badly. The lines were severely rotted and I must have stressed them putting the bed on. So here we have a whole new project.
I guess I will have to replace the fuel pump assembly. Easy enough but not planned for. So it’s off to the web to hunt down prices for the parts. See Ya!
