Fairmont79 Those are the kind of repairs that make you smile! Thanks for sharing. Having parts on a shelf ain't a bad thing, just ask me! LOL

Yup......Super good find and glad to see you caught it and shared. Now the rest of us will have something to look for that is not an obvious!!!

BTW........I think I have one of those liquid filled pressure gauges sitting around!!!! I'll have to rig one up!!!

cat_crazy well its running!

i didnt get the pump delivered yet though. i guess i will have a pump on the shelf. i was doing some work ahead stuff getting ready for the pump tomorrow and decided to pull the fuel pump out. once i had it out i noticed the sock kind of turned when i tipped it on its side. i grabbed the tube and it was loose. once i looked at the top clamp on the pickup tube it was broke. funny part was that was exactly where the fuel level was at so my brain started spinning thinking maybe it was sucking air from that spot. i took some galvanized wire and made my own clamp by twisting it on figuring i would test it. well when i hit the key my home brew fuel pressure gauge read 44 psi!!!! it was kind of a blur at that point, i got pretty excited but i hooked it back up and turned the key. it fired right up and purred like a kitten.

at this point i dont care i spent almost 300 on a pump. its running! now for the spring maintenance

very simple setup. i went to tractor supply, went to the sprayer section and picked up a liquid filled gauge. i know from previous experience these gauges are very accurate. then i went to the plumbing section and picked up a brass 3/8 barbed nipple to attatch the hose. to get them together i just used a 90 degree elbow. thats it.

Fairmont79 I have seen the Stampede and was impressed with the quality, and features. 80HP, dry sump oiling, extended cab! Priced to compete with the 900 Ranger. Time will tell on the after market support! Still thinking my next build will be a 1000!

Ya.......Kinda went a little strong, totally forgetting that AC is no longer AC!! I too hope that Textron continues the tradition. They've really scuttled the Prowler lineup already. A very very sport based lineup, which they've had a good rep for in the past, but really hoping their new Stampede and Havoc live up to tradition.
