thank you for letting me know. i do wanna fix this truck, simply because it belonged to a friend of mine that passed away about 2 years ago. but at the moment, it seems like i'm finding more and more things wrong with it. this break down started with just wanting to replace the small by pass hose. kind of now makes me wish i never gotten started.

I think we all get to a point in our build where we think/thought we were stuck or doing something we shouldn't have. Keep wrenching and I truly believe it's worth it in the end.

"I think we all get to a point in our build where we think/thought we were stuck or doing something we shouldn't have. Keep wrenching and I truly believe it's worth it in the end."

It all depends on how big a smile you want to have when you walk out of a store and are standing in the parking lot and look over and say "Damn look at that sharp old truck", oh yea it mine (big smile).

Hang in there, we are all there now or have been there or are going to be there sooner or later again and again.

Woops I mis-read your original post, and see that you need one for a 460, that I DO NOT have laying around.

Get a hold of keiths78f150 he will hook you up with one.

Great guy, brought me a crave case of White Castle's.....thanks again.
