Alex, as Jeremy stated ... yup. Same setup. I changed up the locations of the parts ... so this was actually a better setup. But still working on it. Need more tests.

Have You figured out a more secure boom yet, Ray? I'm thinking box tubing and a caster would do wonders for You. Much less flex and bounce like We had at FF, I would imagine.

So I got a call from My stupid insurance company today, telling Me that My account is past due. I didn't realize 5 days late counted as "past due", but I've only lived in English speaking Countries for the vast majority of My life, so maybe I don't understand how these things work...I'm a month behind on My electric bill, and they haven't called yet. Just saying.

So the replacement recall pump cost like $294 and requires some kind of mod to the tank to install. I could use a pump for a 03-04 for $210 but that requires some kind of mod to the housing to work. So besides a couple hundred for a pump I'm gonna get hosed for a crap load in labor cuz of having to mod one thing or another. Thought they were supposed to let you know something like this. Kinda pissed right now thinking about having to save up to spend like $1000 for this cuz local dealership screwed me over.
*cough cough* I could do it for penny's on the dollar lol. I had to do the same to mine, been there done that, numerous times already. Ray and I done it at the bottom of his drive way before, in water, covered in gas. Man, good times lol

sitting around waiting for my car to get fixed up and finished...even though i just replaced my alt it has already gone bad...poorly made I am assuming :-\ anyways...where the hell is everyone?
Yeah I would probably try complaining and get them to do it for free if you can. Most likely though they won't. They said mine had too many miles on it already lol.

HHmm Have you check the battery cables going to the alt. starter, battery and engine grounds? I've been through 4 or 5 I think by now. So yeah, I know your pain, I've had the "charging blues" before lol

Haven't talked to local dealer yet but pump was not a safety recall. It was just a warranty extension as they put it. Deadline was last june. Said if I wasn't having problems then they didn't have tell me about it. Will try to call dealer this week.

Didn't you know? I'm always in trouble.

Back to work now.

As far has I know the only pump you can buy is the updated one. But no worries, I have a tool the modify the tank. Well I have a tool I used to modify the tank, can't really say that was it's intended purpose though lol. Yeah they told me the same thing. Back in the day the word on the forum was to go into the dealership and describe the problems, then they'll run a vin check and see if it's been fixed before, if not then they'd fix it for free. Now they say it's been over a certain amount of time or your car's mileage is too high and no longer covered. Sucks but that's how it is now. Leaving us zetec's in the dust lol
