It is removable. It has three clip points that can be a bit of a pain to get loose, but it does come off. Both tanks use the same connector. The...

Low fuel pressure symptoms

I am getting ready to swap out both of my FDMs on my 1993 F150 with the 4.9. A fuel pressure check with a test gauge showed 10psi after first prime, 45psi at idle, and about 48psi if I disconnected...

Exclamation Fuel Delivery Issues with 93 4.9

1993 F-150 4.9/E4OD. 115,000 original miles. Dual tanks.

In January of this year, I bought a '93 F150 from a friend. He told me that the previous owner, whom he had bought the truck from, had...

I'm probably getting about 9-10 at best right now. I plugged a few vacuum leaks and that seemed to help both the mileage and the overall performance of the engine.

I don't know if changing jets in...

MPG Improvement ideas

1981 F-150, 302/C6.

I have a very unique (read: work in progress) combination of engine parts right now on my truck, and while I know it's not particularly the most optimal setup, I'm trying to...

No brake or signal on driver side taillight

After two jeeps broke down on me, I had to go back to driving my truck, and since it had sat up a while, the tags went out. I went to get it inspected last week and noticed the headlights wouldn't...

Today I'm going to see about getting a starter for my truck. My current one is burned out, thanks to advanced timing (who'd have guessed a stock-compression 302 could do it). If all goes as planned I...

Well, I installed six brand new spark plugs (NGK V-Power) and put in about 5-6 dollars of fresh 93 octane gas. It runs better, but it still has a bad hesitation if I blip the throttle at first...

I think your hitmul has 404'd, sir.


I'll look into it. Not sure how it would work though, since it runs about 40psi fuel pressure, and I doubt I can squeeze the bottle hard enough to maintain...

How to clean fuel injectors?

I figured I'd ask you guys this question first before hitting up the later model forums. It's not about my truck, but fuel injection in general.

Just this morning, I drained about 20 gallons of...

I think it was just too much power for a stock design. DSII never put out that kind of juice. I never had any wear problems like this with the stock ignition. I'm not bothered by having to replace...

What's weird is that the buzz came from under the truck, like from the starter itself. It works now but I don't know if it'll do it again. I'll check the connections to be sure.
