  1. Yes, I need 46005 to complete this portion of this vacuum loom.
  2. Are these difficult to replace? If so, why? And is there a write-up on here, of the procedures to do this? Please advise!
  3. Nope. Still acting up. And it's not even warm outside. This lil truck is still chugging. Temperatures, can cause a failing pump to send incorrect fuel pressures to the injectors. Warm fuel, due to heated gasoline returning to the fuel tank through its return line can build up, causing the weak pump to perform poorly.
  4. This is what it sounded like, right after the install of Doorman 43003 and 43004 vaccum looms. Although I am not convinced that all of the bugs are repaired, but at least it is a step in the right direction. 20200101_151918.mp4
  5. Improved, no racing motor at start-up. Post 1 of 2. 20200101_151812.mp4
  6. Replaced their internal fuel pump (abandon in place), for an external fuel pump? And if so, can you supply me with a link and or photos and descriptions. Should I install a check valve, too!
  7. Yes. With the vacuum line slipped over the nipple on the Fuel Pressure Regulator. Remove the vacuum line and the pressure jumps up to 40psi.
  8. I would like to say that this last episode of "Just WTH is wrong w/my Comanche" was all me figuring it out, but no, no it wasn't. With a large part of me texting my friend Michael J Dice and bouncing my problems off with an indispensable, Comanche Club Forums (CCF), we think that we have it narrowed down to, just plain failure of deteriorated vacuum soft parts. First I spoke to Mike, he suggested that I rent a Fuel Pressure Tester (I had to buy it). This afternoon, I tested it. Fuel pressure regulator (FPR) w/the primary vacuum line (PVL) attached was producing just over 30psi. <--- bad. Then Mike suggested that I remove the PVL. I did just that and 'just like magic' that pressure went up to 40psi. That solves that possibility. The FPR is working as it should. And the Fuel Pump was delivering the proper psi, too. That leaves the soft parts being deteriorated, in our mind. So, I will order the Dorman vacuum line kits from Amazon, to see if that is a successful fix. Dorman part numbers, provided by CCF: 46003 and 46004. To recap: if it were not for the above aforementioned, I would of been lost... thanks a bunch, y'all!
  9. Wow, why wouldnt anyone not do that... that is stinking cheap for all of that!
  10. Them things are getting replaced. My fuel pressure regulator is pushing 30psi, with vacuum line attached. Without, 40psi. This means that the regulator is intact, correct? Bleed off, but the pump is producing the necessary pressure. No replacement of the pump at this point.
  11. I just discovered this diagram. So who do I get replacements from, for those destroyed vacuum lines. These buggers are made of a hard substance, or they were cooked from the motors heat. Either way, they are destroyed.
  12. Please see photos. The blue jacketed lines, that are on the top of the engine manifold, near the fuel pressure regulator are damaged, hell pinched off. The only thing left is that blue jacket material. Plus the rubber ends are badly deteriorated. Note: the brass fitting is me trying to check the pressure of what the regulator is producing, please disregard that.
