A thing of beauty, a mechanical fuel pump that costs under thirty dollars and installs in under ten minutes. What is wrong with simplicity?
Well, emissions are a problem, but come on. I had an electric in-tank pump go out in an Isuzu Trooper once, and that one took two afternoons, four or five new cusswords (and countless more common), and three trips to the autoparts store to replace. The emissions from my language probably cancelled out all the gadgetry, vacuum hoses and other smog reducers combined. Besides that, there were the three trips to the part store ten miles away, fer crying out loud.
It was another beautiful day today, t-shirt and shorts to fix the Ford in. I hope you're enjoying a bit of Spring yourself.
