Now I know why I bought this truck!!!

Alright, I have been internally beating myself up for buying this truck, it is nickel and diming me right now, but it is all somewhat small stuff (except the trans) and is ALL worth it. I just got home with 6 TONS (really) of Early chrysler hemi parts and complete motors, all loaded on to the bed I just built for the truck, 8' 3" wide by 12' 3" long. This rig PULLS like no other. up Grapvine hill doing 70 in 5th, and my foot was still not all into it yet. BUT it does run 3000r's at 70mph. Anyone need any rare motors?? Get the word out, I have complete hemi's parts, flathead fords, Y-block fords, a 215 all Aluminum factory 4 barrel fresh buick nailhead, and a 1956 F250 chopped no engine/trans.(avatar is before chop) Gotta let some go so I can haul the rest across the country! This is not a for sale ad, but if it needs to be moved for that reason then OK, I just wanted to express my pleasure with the heavy a$$ haul this thing just did for me. I am leaking fuel though, looks like the lift pump.

It may not be your lift pump, I thought mine was bad to untill I found a switch leaking look for the post. It was a fairly inexpensive fix. What flatheads do you have?

Thanks for the tips, and the word of mouth, about to dive into the fuel leak in a few minutes, as for flatheads, I have 8BA 59AB, 239, 255, 337, and 1 V8 60 (for those who don't know, that's 60 HP!) Not the right place to talk about them though, PM me if you need something, I will have a website in a month or so... Nick55, do you have a link to the thread about the switch?? Thanks As for a 428 CJ, the guy I bought the Hemi stuff from sold an original 18,000mi. Torino 428CJ yesterday for $10,000. Needs some work but a steal none the less.

Don't know how to do the linky thing but it was today and the title was name this part. The guy that replied had an exploded view of the filter housing and was quite helpful.

Thanks guys, I am into the motor right now, and can't seem to find the leak. It seems intermitent, leaking around the rear, because there is no fuel in the front of the valley, but there is below the lift pump, but I cannot see the weep hole in the pump. from the banjo fitting, which direction is it?
Thanks!
