I believe that the OEM pump in the early Daimler years was made by Airtex. Prior to that, Walbro made the OEM pumps for lots of Chrysler vehicles.

But don't hold me to that, as I've been into so...

"New" does not mean "good." Those two terms do not always go hand-in hand especially in the aftermarket parts world. That is why I asked what kind of fuel pump went in there. If it is some brand...

Moog parts are garbage. Stay the hell away from anything with that name stamped on them. The cheap-o house brand stuff at Oreilly's is better. Yeah their warranty is good, but that doesn't do any...

What kind of fuel pump did you use?

I recommend sticking with ones made by companies you've actually heard of, such as Denso, Delphi, Bosch, ACDelco, Mopar, etc. Bonus points if whoever makes it...

It is not uncommon for someone to break a crankshaft sensor when working the engine/transmission together or apart. That is very plausible to be the problem.

I get no pleasure out of doing this,...

I remember fishing the bolts through but I do not remember any unusual difficulty in doing so. Hmm. Never rely on brain to remember stuff. I'm glad you got it done. I don't use my front hitch...

I've had some hits with Dorman, but mostly misses. An example are the coolant elbows for the General Motors 3800 engine. Dorman makes some aluminum ones, which is great. BUT THEY PUT THE WRONG...

You can get some stuff at Walmart.com now that you wouldn't ever think Walmart would have. Walmart basically gets a cut of the sale for advertising "here it is" for someone else. So, it makes sense...

Just give us a message with the result. I hate it when there's threads where whoever originally asked what the problem was just suddenly disappears.

I could take some measurements of my hitch, and although it is not much of a reference, I just stuffed in whatever hitch insert I had laying around and there's room. If it is a bit of a drop hitch,...

I got it for the recovery points and to help put my snowmobile trailer away. Backing up that trailer really sucks because of how wide it is and you can't see jack.

There's no way I can advise. I've seen vehicles die like this because of a bad battery terminal. I doubt it is fuel or fuel pump related as that rarely results in the symptoms described here.

The change in fuel has nothing to do with it. If I am somehow wrong, it still means you have a problem that is being pushed with a wet noodle over the threshold of working at all.

You probably want to first verify that it isn't the oil filter adapter O-ring leaking. That's a very common point of failure. Cheaper to replace, too. Valve cover gaskets can leak back there as...
