Oh NOOOO, No Ideas??? Someplace for me to start?
We went to Iowa to get the truck Yesterday, it does in fact fire right up. But, not being licenced or insured, I didn't want to drive it anywhere. but it starts up, and seems to run great. Went to U-Haul to get a trailer to bring her home, and low and behold, the 92 is TOO LONG To fit on the trailer. Almost 2 feet too long. So we took the trailer back, did a LOT of debating, and left the truck there. We're gonna see if Someone around my area has an equipment trailer to use. My dad has a Car trailer, but it's only rated at 5000 LBS. Not too sure if we want to over load the trailer for 800 miles...
ANY How, talking to the guy I bought it from, he said He was driving it once (He's a Used car dealer, who took the truck in on trade), when the truck started to die 15 minutes after driving it, before it died, he flipped the tank selector, it kept running, but he didn't want to chance it, and brought it back to the shop with no further incidents. he said one of his employees drove it, and the same thing happened. He flipped tanks, it ran another 15 min, started to die, he flipped back to the original tank, it kept running, and he made it back to the shop....
what is used on the trucks to switch tanks? According to the gas guage, one is 3/4 full, the other is really close to full. No I don't trust the guages, but yesterday, we didn't have time, nor patients to do any further checking. It was 4 degrees there. We took some people to Chicago for a visit, and they were relying on us to be back at a certain time to bring them home too, so we couldn't "Diagnose", or attemp some other form to get the truck back to N.Y.... We're going to try to find a bigger trailer and go back Sunday to get it. If we can find a bigger trailer, I'm half tempted to try to drive it home, and play with that tank selector switch, and see just HOW Far it really will go, to see if THAT is the problem with the truck...
Sorry this is so long. Just trying to give you guys some insight to attemp to point me in the right direction to get my "NEW BABY" on the road. I'm ready to start Learning about Diesel Power.
Thanks for your time
