jakebrake86 Posted March 4, 2006 Share Posted March 4, 2006 I've got a new problem I was wondering if anyone could help me with. First of all, I'm no engine man...I do good to call myself a truck driver LOL. Anyway, the other day my dad found a good deal on a 1974 RS600LS and decided he'd lay down the $2500 and try to use it as a site truck. He used it for a week or two before it came time to drive it 200 miles in 12 degree weather to the Vicksburg yard. I was driving and had gone about 4 miles when it seemed to run out of fuel and just die. The tanks were full so we changed the filters. That worked for another 4 or 5 miles until it did the same thing again. We kept stair stepping our way until we limped a grand total or 25 miles and stopped in Clarksdale in a legion hut parking lot. We got a real mechanic to look at it and he said it was sucking air at the primer pump so we plugged it like it is on all of our other trucks... This time it wouldn't even crank. Finally we changed the supply pump but that didn't seem to make any difference. The truck is still sitting in the legion hut parking lot to my knowledge (havent talked to dad in a week) but does anyone have any ideas? My uneducated guess is that the injection pump is bad...
