Well I posted my issue with the PCV valve that had a loud chatter ... Turned out to be a leaking fuel vac line at the tank. Found out by clampimg off both the vac lines from the canister. Now I need to get to those small tank rubber lines and replace them ... Just thought I would let you know what I found ... May save some time for someone else.... MIke

Cool. Be sure to use fuel rated hoses.

Loosen the bed and tilt it. I've done it. Using a 2X4" or blocks to hold up the bed.

Tnx I will try that ... I got some heavy tool boxes that will have to come out to do it but I figure I'll replace both sending units while in there? Is that the best way to get at the dual tank fuel valve too ?

If I lift the bed off my truck again, I'm replacing both sending units. Worth the time. I've used an engine hoist to lift it by myself. I do have to take the bed off one more time. The bed will get rust proofing and cleaning. Frame and axle will get paint too. A behind the roll pan hitch will also be strengthened for use.

Yeah good idea... I'll have to think about that when I figure out which way to guse to get at the hoses ... May be able to use the A frame to lift the bed off ... ? ... Just hae to get up the get up it will take to start that project and get all the tank parts together first then make myself do it HA HA ... For some reason I just have not been able to make myself get going on it .. I use the old truck everyday with the stock trailer and I know I'll be without it for a while ..But it has to be done ..Mike

Copy this with wood!

An A frame and lift balancing the bed will work.
