He evreryone hope all is well. It's been a long time since I posted but I have done ALOT. since my last post I have replaced the :radiator, water pump, thermostat, fuel lines,fuel pump, wheel studs, u joints, transmission extension seal, wheel bearings and brake hoses. It's been quite the journey so far but she runs and drives now. The lil Lil red express is having some problems though. Mostly heat. Like overheating and vapor lock causing no start and the battery drains out from cranking. My fix idea. Electric fuel pump right after the tank going to the mechanical pump so whenever you need to refill the vapor locked lines you can flick the pump on. Can you run electric with mechanical. And how would I run a return line on the stock thermoquad? My other idea is I have two tanks and to hook the electric pump up to the second tank before the switch over solenoid. So normal operation you run in the primary tank. And during starting you flip to the secondary tank and flick the fuel pump on to "prime" the system. How does this sound. Or is it better to get rid of the mechanical pump entirely and just run electric and a return line somehow. Thanks guys and btw how do I solve this cooling debacle. I have a 180 thermo in there rn and it holds cool on the freeway in 100 degrees but as soon as you slow down below 40 or it gets over 100 degrees it immediately climbs and keeps climbing until it pegs to H and pukes coolant!
