I own a 70’s f250 Truck which has been running like shit for a year, so I finally got around to it and turns out it just needed a new oil filter and the distributor needed adjusting it was retarded (heh). And now she runs like a fucking champ. The oil filter was clogged.
Coincidentally 2 days later my car suddenly died a block from my house. I was going up a hill and it just died. No sputtering, just dead. I thought it was the alternator, so I got it back to my house, charged the battery and nothing. It would turn over and no fuel to the carburetor.
I checked the fuel filter, it was rusty as fuck so I order parts and remove it. It took me two ducking hours and I hit my face twice trying to remove the ducking thing. I pour some gas on the carburetor and it turns and dies. I know the fuel pump is working because I forgot to put an extra nut on the fuel filter assembly and it spitting gas.
Still won’t fucking start. I have no idea, my hunch is the fuel injector unit is somehow clogged. Because I’m not getting fuel, I took it apart and fuel is coming from the top of it instead of the bottom.
Anyway, that was my day. I look like I got in a fucking fight today, both sides of my face are bruised and one side was bleeding.
