    Anyone feel like some displacement for their Chero? Bubba needs a fuel pump and I don;t feel like fixing it. Metro St. Louis area. Before I craigslist it I figured I'd give the board a chance at it. Aside from the fuel pump it was a perfectly running daily driver. Put a lot of work in the engine last year, with about 3k miles on that stuff. I'll list everything out if anyone is interested. It is a lot.

    Powertrain is a (7.5l) 460 with an E40D, both strong. 130k miles. Of course, it's also a nice 96 conversion van if you just want to plop in a fuel pump and battery and drive it.

    OK, now for the insults, jokes, and snide remarks. Bring it!

    You should see if someone would trade ya for a 72 Ranchero. To be fair, I wouldn't put a fuel pump in it either, because it would only add $20-30 to the value, and that's not worth the 2-3 days of time you'd spend changing it.

    Doesn't that computer require the sensor in the rear end?
    If so, those are not good candidates for installation in an older car.

    I don't know if that computer requires a sensor in your rear end or not. It's OBD-I rather than II at least.

    I am not referring to your 'pound-o-meter'.
    If there are wires going down to the pumpkin the computer uses a speed sensor there to control the transmission and fuel curve. A quick glance will tell.
    If it doesn't, that would be a good swap into a 72 or later Ranchero, more power with decent MPG.

    Before Carl asks, no rust. Since it is not a primary vehicle I don't want to put more repair money into it, I don't have a Chero to drop the engine in, and I don't want to pay for insurance only to drive it occasionally. Anyway, a picture.

    That thing would look great lowered, with some 19's on it. Not by me, though.

    After you sell the drivetrain you could rent it out to one of the nice people from Ferguson.
    A step up for them, and regular income for you.

    I wouldn't lower an 8 lug one-ton personally, but to each their own. From the van side of things, new front calipers and pads, remote start, keyless entry, and new AC system installed 3k ago. I know, wasted money .Sue me.

    I'll bid $20, shipped to Prunetucky.
    I don't want it, but it would make a nice place for Carl's cats.

    I'm holding out for free shipping and a coupon for a full body massage (with or without happy ending).

    Meh, decided it was best to get my lovely beast back on the road. Fuel pump was the culprit. I think the fuel injector pressure regulator was probably bad, causing the pump to overwork itself and die. Since the install of those two parts, the thing seems to have a lot more giddyup than I recall it having. Good to have it back again.

    Old friends are hard to discard, never sounded like you really wanted to turn it.

    Good that you are back on your feet and don't need to rent it out.

    You know, it sat for a year nearly completely abandoned, yet it showed no signs of aging. No infestations, no mice, no water intrusion, no rust, no nothing. Power sprayed a year's worth of settlement off the exterior and it was back to looking like I just parked it. And when I finished the repairs, it cranked about 4 times and fired up. Didn't stumble or die. Peed a little water out the tailpipe but otherwise it was game on. That's kinda werid. I guess the neighborhood cats are keeping the field mice at bay.
