Don't beat yourself to hard ... We all do dumb things now and again.

Ask me how well Diesels run on Gasoline ...

How did that go? I live in oregon and we can't pump our own fuel here they to have teenagers and people that can't get real jobs pump it for us and one day a guy filled up my tank with the black handle and I didn't notice untill I saw him hang up the handle. Lucky I saw it but I always wondered what would happen if I would have started it like that.

Long story, the short of it is, It stranded me in Ohio ... Kinda.

Diesels do not run well on Gas if at all!

To many hours in the seat ... I was hard burnt, station attendant ticked me off, my BofA card kept getting refused even though I filed a travel plan with them, pump was broke had to move to another and most importantly I obviously went brain dead!

Obviously I still haven't let it go, never will.

I changed out my 05 expedition transmission now the starter Bendix isn't engaging. I went and had the starter tested its perfectly fine but when I go to start it all it does is make a clicking sound. Any suggestions on what it may be?

I have the exact same issue that you have had. Tell me how you hooked your starter up. The smaller wire I have is a 12 gauge ground wire that connects to the starter solenoid. What am I doing wrong
