Basic instructions on how to tip your bed and remove your fuel pump and sender assembly, replacement of the fuel pump from the sender unit and putting it back into the tank with gasket o-ring and lock ring. I also show video of the bolt hole locations on my short bed frame.
I was also having an issue where a piece of ice would keep my primary air tank from airing up. I would be driving down the road and I would slow down for an off ramp or school bus and the primary air tank would not air up. I put my old thinkin’ cap on and determined that I needed to do the same thing between the compressor and the air tanks. This worked too.
The best thing to do is drain the water out daily during the summer and change your air dryer filter on a regular basis.
Now that I knew this thing still worked, at least somewhat, it was time to fix what went wrong and replace the missing pieces with what I had laying around.
This was another one of those “redneck” fixes where nothing has to look original or perfect, it just has to work again. That being the case, there are no holds barred on what to use for the repair.
I found there was a device at the top of the cylinder head (I presume to release excess pressure as the unit is running) which had failed. It had an air vent that would stick open once the machine got to about 100 PSI, and started blowing air out. Because the piston is very hot, the air being expelled was as well, which actually melted a small hole in the housing. That clued me in where to look, the fix was my own idea.
I don’t think the wheel is going to end up working out; hot glue is not going to hold it. I can try to epoxy it in, but I think instead I might have a rubber foot that will fit over it, which I can then fill with hot glue and that will hold.
