    [/ QUOTE ]sounds like the fuels turned into varnish. try dumping some fresh fuel into it, and possibly some carb cleaner and etc.

    good luck with it. in a semi ironic twist, I'm back in phoenix for the weekend... got into town last night at midnight, parked the truck, came out this morning after playign with my new toys, and found a 2 foot patch of oil under the damn thing. apparently, my timing cover gasket blew at the oil pan. either that, or the fuel pump gasket is shot. hard to tell, but it's deffinately coming out of the passenger side near the front, rolling down the crossmember, and creating a superfund situation on my dad's pristine white driveway. Hoo @#%$^ing Ray. damn truck...
