When it rains it pours I guess. After replacing the lift pump and testing the injection pump, the glow plug controller failed. So I replaced the controller and relay with a later model setup, but it requires updated glow plugs as the heat cycle is much shorter. Now those are on order, and hopefully we can get this puppy out of my driveway for a little while.

Interior-wise we removed the sink, oven/range and kitchen cabinets and one wall at the shower. Damn if they didn't run that nasty carpet all underneath there, and there is no way for me to get to the broken taillight wire with the shower in place. Gotta borrow a fish tape and a hook pole and hopefully fish a new wire up from below and just abandon the damaged wire in place. Sorry for the lack of pictures, the cabinetry was so rotted and far gone we were able to pull most of it apart with our hands, meaning I didn't want to handle my camera. Lots of nesting material stuffed in there, as well but nothing still living in it.

Well I'm stumped at this point. Lift pump, fuel filters & rubber lines replaced, system pressure tested and no air found, glow plugs, GP controller & relay all replaced. Batteries good. Will start but will not run. All that's left is the injection pump and that is too big of a job for me.
