Not much in the way of progress this week on my Airstream, beyond the arrival of some LED bulbs..
With my Parents visiting, I have been spending time with them, and when they have been entertaining themselves I have been fixing the GF's Range Rover.
It was not starting when hot.. an investigation revealed no fuel pressure, but as soon as it cooled, pressure came back, and it ran fine.
Turned out to be a bad fuel pump.. as far as I see now.
Its an "In Tank Pump", but part of the whole assembly, with pump/Sender/return.
The word is that the Land Rover part is $800...
Drained and dropped the tank... pig of a job!
I found a TRE pump that was identical, and $85..
Some careful disasembly, and we have fuel pressure, and its running fine!
An Autopsy on the old pump shows one of the 2 brushes was not connected to the armature..
The word is that 100k miles is about right, and we have 125k on her.
For all you anti British Electrical Naysayers... the Original pump has a large "Made in Mexico" stamp on it!
Now I have the front suspension out to find where and why the Drivers side Suspension Airbag is leaking down overnight...
This can only be good training for the Airstream... Right???
