    wait, are you talking about an injection pump or a fuel tank cap? if you check out the kennedy diesel site, they've got re-manned injection pumps.

    CUCV pumps have hardened internal parts so they can run off of jet fuel otherwise they are the same as civi pumps and will work the same.

    Are there "better" years, like the red 6.2 block?

    What about (diesel) filter elements? We know about Fram's famous oil filters...

    Filters!..

    You only need to remember 3 letters when it comes to filters!..W-I-X....they make the best ones... FRAM is a 4 letter word!..I'd leave my old filter on rather than put a Fram one on anything I own,after seeing one cut open right out of the box!...how they stay in bussiness baffles me..must be the fancy TV commercials...

    I'd use AC-Delco or Baldwin filters without fear also..but I heard AC-Delco filters are now Hencho-en Mexico built...like 99% of all the department store filters are...so I'm paying more for a WIX,and not minding the cost..its WORTH it to know its a decent filter!...:crazy:

    Couldn't agree more. I'm at bike week in Laconia, NH and see a few wild custom bikes, like Boss Hoss V8, supercharged V max with FRAM oil filters. Hard to believe... I saw another oil filter review in a (classic) Ford Thunderbird Mag. Anybody see it? what's the title? Ford (V8) Times??? Wix has a new medium line, swirlaway or something. Will check for country of origin...
