New fuel pump, misfired, died no codes
first let me start by saying i dont post often, but i do browse these forums alot and you guys are extremely helpful.
early 99 superduty 7.3 240k miles lost high oil pressure. put in new glow plugs, new valve cover harnesses, replaced injector 0-rings, bought a terminator HPOP 17*(by the way what a heck of a difference), new ICP and IPR, changed cam sensor for giggles and rebuilt the fuel bowl, because it was right there. long cranks and things ive read said low fuel pressure so i added a BB to the FPR and it ran GREAT.
the fuel pump sounded terrible and one day while the wife was driving it, it started dropping cylinders and died.
dropped tank, checked filters, they were clean, reassembled, ran a hose to old fuel pump from gas can and it didnt pump anything. bought a 120 dollar fuel pump from napa, as i am broke after everything i just bought and cant afford 400 bucks for an oem. filled fuel bowl, ran good, long hard starts and fuel pump didnt ever seem to "prime" just straight run for like 30 seconds with key on and was pretty loud for like 50 miles.
then today i said ya know, i should probably pull that BB behind the spring with this new pump. on my way to work running 70mph on the highway, i get to town and started losing cylinders ... and it died. 140 miles after new fuel pump.
i'm so broke and i want love this truck so much, its amazing when it runs. But i cant run my business on this truck, it breaks down like every week. did i smoke the new fuel pump from running too high pressure or what? im at a loss. i just walked 20 miles home. i could use some advice and a little pick me up.
thanks in advance
