    I was cured today though.....My CUCV has been down for about 3 weeks. I replaced the lift pump and filter still nothing. Today I was getting a battery out of the beast and droped a wrench. When I crawled under it I saw this patch of dead grass. Investigating I found A HOLE IN THE FUEL LINE!!!!!!! My less than steller body man put a patch panel in my floor and drilling the pop rivot holes nicked the fuel line. Some hose and 4 clamps later shes running like a top again.

    This is by far the worst case I have had in a long long time.

    Gratz on finding the 'root cause' /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif. On a different note, I can't wait 'til I can get a drivetrain like yours under the /forums/images/graemlins/burb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif
