I am getting to old I guess.Dakattack, are you sure this is a Ford Chassis rather than a John Deere chassis? I only ask that because far as I know, the Ford F53 chassis did not start until 1988.If it is a JD chassis, I think the fuel pump relay (ford p/n e4tz-9c392A) is in the right front of the radiator or right side of the engine compartment. There is also may be a inertia switch (Ford P/N E1AZ-9341B) in the area of the steering wheel or brake light switch inside the cab area. It is used to detect the vehicle has been in an accident.EBAY

Rebuilt carb no start changed the coil, then looked at the plugs fired fine, then went back to hard starting, getting fuel next is the fuel filter and then the pump or even the fuel electric relay sensor.1975 Dodge 440

Quote from: Rickf1985 on March 29, 2017, 10:17 AMFull tanks, I don't know where you are located but I have a guy not all that far from me that sells 55 gallon oil drums that he takes back in as empties when he sells full drums. He would normally get a 20.00 deposit from the oil company for the returns but he sells them locally for the same amount to save himself the hassle of transporting the empties all the way to the refinery. I use them to store diesel fuel, stale gas, old motor oil. No reason why you could not use one or two of those drum to hold the gas from your tanks if you had to. The only thing left in the drums is a little bit of motor oil which when mixed with 55 gallons of gas would do nothing to the gas. Just do a search for "55 gallon drums" Or "used 55 gallon oil drums". The thing you would need to watch out for is if the drums were used for something other than clean motor oil before you got them. I even saw a guy selling new 55 gallon stainless steel drums, he was selling them to be used with wood stove door kit for making wood stoves. They were kind of pricey at $100.00 each though.
Quote from: DRMousseau on March 29, 2017, 12:00 PMWait. What? BOTH tanks?!? yessir, is this not standard? maybe the previous owner added one? new remember? lol!
Quote from: DRMousseau on March 28, 2017, 08:02 PMYes Rick!!! And it would be SO nice if my John Deere Chassis had an external fuel pump. I so dreaded possible problems when I experienced similar symptoms of fuel flow and unable to hear the pump runnin'.But an external pump would ALSO have possible connection problems that many experience this time of year, being exposed on the frame below the vehicle.John Deere made the basic chassis with Fords setup,... depending on chassis model they were all about the same, with later ones being injected engines. But RV manufactures had their own steering columns, and a few other variations and setups specific to THEIR make and model. It might be unfair for me to assume that's it's the same chassis as I have, but given a it's a year older than mine, and about the same length,.... I think I'd be guessin' close. But of course there were variations even on the long heavy chassis. It appears the big 90gal fuel tank had BOTH internal and external options of fuel pumps, the small tanks had only the external pumps.And like Rick said,... check that relay too! I've had 'em suddenly fail, and inside found it was jus a big ROCK of corrosion. Still worked, till the change in weather caused too much dampness in the corrosion.
Quote from: dakattack on March 29, 2017, 10:04 AMmorning guys, since I filled both tanks just before this problem, you can bet I'll be checking all those things! dropping a full tank is NOT something I look forward to. The relay, I hadn't even considered that, thanks again guys. Stay tuned, I'm going in!! lol!
