Okay, I'm officially pi$$ed off. my 83 ranger decided to stop running on me on Friday, which royally pi$$ed me off. I know the problem is in the fuel system, either the pickup line is clogged or the pump is bad(shouldnt be, its brand new. Its not getting fuel to the carb, I know that much for sure, it will run with gas poured down the throat of the carb though, so I dont get it. the specifics of the truck are it has a 2.3L inline 4 cylinder engine, 4 speed manual tranny, 2wd, and no AC. any help is appreciated. fuel pump on this model isnt electrical, its mechanical and mounted on the engine block.
