Small but big update. I finally have matching wheels all around and the suspension sitting just about perfect. After a couple months lostandfound is off jack stands! Still need to get it running again. I'm pretty sure the FPR went bad so I'll be getting another one and a fuel pressure guage for under the hood to make troubleshooting future issues easier. Still a couple months before I can really do a good road test and finally drive it, but worth the wait!

I saw a QR Code stamp on the brake booster in the “before & after” photos. Can you tell us what’s that about?

I didn’t see it on the “after” or painted photo…

I removed it before I painted it. I know the previous owner said he replaced the booster so I'm guessing it would open a link to installation instructions or something along those lines.

You got me curious so I cropped the original pic and was able to open the QR code link and as suspected it was an install apart.com link that doesn't seem to work anymore.

That's some nice quality time that you spent on painting the frame. I guess I need to do that before mine while it is still clean.

Slight bump in the road to getting this truck back on the road. I replaced the FPR with an OEM one I got from a buddy and still wouldn't start. Sprinkled a little gas in the throttle body and she started right up. Pulled the fuel rail and noticed the injectors were spraying pretty weak when trying to start. So I've since found out I have a pretty bad rust problem in the tank which has clogged up the filter so the pressure is just too low. Looks like I'll be dropping the tank and use one of those tank restore kits to get rid of all the rust and reseal it. Not what I wanted to find but glad I know what the issue is.

Don't think gas is supposed to look like that...



Video of the fuel coming out if interested.

I didnít even have rust in mine, just some ethanol gas that had left some grime around the tank, and cleaning that thing (granted still in the truck) was one of the worst things Iíve done working on this truck. Probably spent $30-$40 in different cleaners and kept getting some off no matter how much I cleaned. Spent too many hours too count soaking, draining, scrubbing, refilling with water, draining, etc.. I should have just pulled the tank to try and clean it, but it didnít look overly dirty to begin with.

Ended up seeing I could have bought a new tank for $192 and like $209 shipped from rock auto, and regretted not just replacing the entire tank and saving myself the effort. Thatís the only thing Iíd have done differently going back I think, and I would 100% do it if I were you, but if youíre on a budget spending those hours cleaning will definitely save a few bucks.
