Fuel pump took a shit on me at the Safeway parking lot down the street from busta nut's shop. First time that's ever happened to me with a mechanical pump. Luckily busta nut's shop had a spare. I walked to the shop to get it and swapped it in the parking lot in like 5 minutes. man I love these cars. 

 

Busted pump

This also happened. Datsun logo came off.

So I pulled this guy out of retirement

Ok so another surprise. I was driving home from SF last Sunday and my ignition light came on. Lol. Wtf. So I figured this is a good a time as any to upgrade to IR alternator. I ordered that shit today as well as a set of new tires. Cutting it kind of close for Canby.

Stay tuned.

yea, i took it apart and the diaphragm has small cracks all around. i think they can but i couldn't find a rebuild kit. But i didn't spend too much time looking for one cause Canby is coming up.

Stockers. 
 
 
Small update. New alternator came in. New tires came in too. But, I just bought a house with my dad so that's been taking up a lot of my time moving and shit.  But, today i started on the alt. and by started i mean i got the truck to the new house and got the old alt out. lol. It's been an exhausting weekend.

Hopefully I'll get the alt swap done this week and get the new tires mounted and balanced shortly thereafter. Then it will be small things like oil change, valve adsjustment, etc...
