    Fuel pump relay and inertia switch wires melted

    I dont know about the 88. But i know on my 04 stang it goes from relay to what they call a fuel pump control module. Then to the inertia switch and then to the pump. The control module regulates the voltage to the pump to vary the speed and pressure. But your case definitely sounds like...

    New to forum and workin on my truck!

    Almost sounds like a ground issue. The old printed boards used to lose the ground and never read over half a tank. But your 13 would have soldered boards.

    New to forum and workin on my truck!

    Welcome to the site. Sorry about your woes with the truck. My guess would be somethings been pinched. I know fords had some issues with fuel level readers being off. Mines had that issue a few times. Itll say its at 1/4-1/2 tank when its actually full. Usually fixes itself after 30 mins of...

    1978 Intermittent wiper conversion

    That part i cant answer. It was just what i could find online for the same sounding condition. But they were factory installed units. So dont know how the conversion units act. I know when my dad tried to do the same with the corsica we had at the time it wouldnt work at all.

    1978 Intermittent wiper conversion

    Everything i could find for it said the relay tends to be the problem when just the intermittent stops working. The only other mention is a failed circuit board in the wiper motors or bad contacts at the wiper motor.Circuit board on the motors was mentioned with newer vehicles so dunno if...

    Infamous Phaser Rattle

    Friend of mine just had to change the guides on his. The one was completely missing/disintegrated. Found some pieces of it sitting on the ledge of the oil pan that remains when the timing cover was removed.

    Towing a 1983 F250 with automatic transmission

    And if the bolt heads are weakend you may need a small saw to cut off the heads and retainers. Just be careful not to cut the ujoint caps if your planning to reuse the ujoint. The retainers and bolts are like $10-20 to replace. If you gotta cut them the fun parts getting the rest of the bolt...

    Fuel issues

    There were some models the selector valve was hidden behind the tank itself. You would pretty much have to drop the tanks to find it. From what i read it was mainly the gassers that had them hidden there. The diesels had the larger ones under the driver side floor boards.
