I got a little something in the mail today, new exhaust manifold, I was so exited I forgot to take a picture of it before I installed it.
here is the old one that was shot
I took it out for a test drive, I meant to just go around the block but I was enjoying myself so much and marveling at the new exhaust I just kept on going.
When I was far from any were, it ran out of gas.
No big deal I have a gas can write?
Pour in gas, ....no go.
OK, don't panic yet, you left in shorts and a t-shirt to go around the block, it's dark and getting cold, you have a dead vehicle, in the middle of nowhere, and your cell phone is nice and safe sitting on the work bench at home.
I know, I know.
so grab screwdriver and faster than nascar pull fuel lines to check for flow or blocked filter, nothing.
work my way back all the way to the pump at the tank, still nothing.
so as a last ditch effort I put the pump into my gas can to manually prime it and then reinstalled it, victory!
strait to gas station and then home.
I still can't believe what a difference the exhaust made it really feels almost like a new motor, good times.
