man this thing let me down in a no start condition.  let her warm up tonight to plow out the lot before i headed in, got 3/4 done and it died.  figured it was out of gas, put 5 gallons in it and fired right up.  Died again and couldnt get the filter to fill back up.  got it running on starting fluid for 30 seconds or so then seemed good, now wont fire at all, filter is full and accel pump sprays fuel, no run on starter fluid either!  damit.


sits as landed.

i cannot believe you have no faith after you have first hand experienced the awesomness of the lifting power of the Ford.  after tom and i lubed up the cables its unstopable.  nick and chadly have had the full experience!

oh I have deep faith.

it's been shaken with the reports of self-fixing non-restart stalling though! No doubt she's a sweet machine. Just incredibly rough around the edges, eating into the center just a little. Especially under the seats.

i got about 10 minutes into plowing again and she kicked out again.

this time since it was day light i was a little smarter.  its running out of fuel.  i noticed this time the filter is clogged with shit, i changed.   pumps like mad when unhooked from carb and cranking, but no fuel when hooked to carb.  i guess shit is clogged in the jets or something.  it will come off and get cleaned and hopefully fix the problem.
