    I think i will just make a part list and post it, there really isnt to much on this car worth having...

    No updates, i have been trying to work on my 4x4 dodge dually. it is starting out in 2nd or 3rd gear, hoping its a soliniod, but may need to replace trans, that cummins is tough on a trans.

    The garage pic was sweet. Made me think "would you like a car with that dust." Haven't seen a hole like that in a casing since the Briggs engine on my generator broke an aluminum rod and sent it out the side of the crankcase. Makes a guy wonder the force it took to do that.

    well yes and no... i have done a few more small things but its not running yet. i have been building a 20x32 shed for the riding mowers and 4 wheelers so i can have more room in my main shop to get more work done. i am actually about to go out and finish hanging the r-panel on it. hope its finally complete today, then i will resume on the scort!


    i have no idea what the side skirts came off of.

    I got the engine back in the car but have ran into a problem. I believe this is a problem that was from a while back that i never got corrected. I am not getting fuel. The relay has been swapped out i had a few of them surly they arnt all bad.. I remember at some point about 7 years ago i had a fuel problem that i temporarily fixed but may of caused another problem. I had ground the green wire on the relay. To the best i can remember it made a clicking sound and then allowed the pump to turn on.


    does anyone know the color of the hot and ground for the pump. I am wanting to jump it and make sure this pump is still good. i had replaced it shortly before the engine blew.

    I have a couple more q's but i want to see if this can be addressed first.

    Thanks Dave. I figured it was the Blk purple so I used my booster box and sure enough it turned on. So I plugged the battery back in and opened the vaf door and hear the pump turn on as well. That was good news I guess it needed a jumpstart after sitting so many years. The relay isn't ground either so hopefully things are going a little better now. Im waiting on a tie rod to come in so I can finish installing the Manuel rack so I can finish the front suspension brakes etc. Lots to do still but she will live again. :)
