HI,

A little behind the truck:
At some point, she was taken to CO from CA. From the records I have, it was between '95 and '03. '03 being the last year she was register and that was in CO. P.O. who sold it to me brought her back to CA, and fast forward a few years, and I bought her. Before I could even bring it home, she needed work. When I got there, she would only start by putting fuel in the carb. After buying her, I bypassed teh fuel tank switch (the one on the floor by the drivers door) since the bed tank isn't installed (I have it, it's just in the nbed of the truck, not installed), and she gets fuel fine. Drove her right on home. Now, I've got a few more problems, but a good lead on a couple, and I'm going to fix her right on up.

A little about me:

Ya'all can call me Sparx, Sparky, or Mac. Everybody else does. I'm into old trucks and cars, love wrenching on vehicles, country/rock/rap/hip-hip is my music. I'm a shade tree mechanic, inde film maker, web series directer/production manager, and the coolest older brother you'll ever meet.

Hey guys.....thanks for posting up.

If you have a chance to make it out to the F100 show tomorrow I'd highly recommend it. There's not a better one on the West Coast.

f100 Western Nationals

If you do make it out be sure to look for the SoCal chapter banner, and stop by to say hello.
