    Check to make sure the tank isn't delaminating. I know we have different year ranges, but I just had to replace my tank in the diesel. The stuff it was picking up looks very similar to that stuff in your picture.

    I looked inside the tank as much as possible, seemed fine. The vast majority of junk on it was black and the sock was black. The sock came apart pretty easy and was already off the metal collar where it attaches to the pump about halfway round.

    But I replaced it and the fuel filter on the frame. Gonna go for a little drive today

    Replaced the fuel pump and the filters.


    It helped the problem but it did not go away.

    Still dying with a load on it and almost backfiring through the exhaust

    Just an update on here. Replaced cap and rotor. There was some wear on em. Checked the plugs and plug wires. They likely need done sooner than later but nothing drastic. Checked the coil. Coil was reading funny, tested with an ohm meter, so I replaced it.

    Problem still exists. I think I'm pretty down to replacing the distributor? I'm gonna do plugs and wires just cause an ignition issue may cause shortened life span.

    So that brings me this question. 50 to 85 dollars for a whole bunch of different branded distributors. Then it takes a huge jump to near 300 bucks for a AC Delco. PerTronix has one for 230 bucks.

    So risk cheap junk? AC Delco or Petronix.

    I have use Petronix stuff in the past and never had an issue

    I would only use delco stuff. I went to a yard and pulled one for 15 bucks with a delco ICM. Backfiring through the exhaust sounds like an ignition problem to me. I have a spare delco icm I could send your way if I can find it.

    Well cheap parts it is. Kristle just found out the 3 ethics courses she took dont meet Idaho standards, Wyoming standards yes. But since she practices in Idaho and Wyoming doesn't work. Has been alot of this lately . So 400 bucks for classes and 100 bucks for a license extension fee and Bam. That's as cheap as possible for the poor burb

    Yep definitely fixed!

    Nice to have the awesomeness that the burb is back in full force
