I have to say I sure could use a gull for my rear door on my shorty, $200 in gaskets and its still leaking, I've adjusted both doors till they close perfect, ,I can only pray this gasket replacement does the trick, or I'll need to remove my mattress and put in a pool.

More like what did you do to your van the past couple of weeks.

The '77 Econoline wouldn't turn over after swapping out the coil. Thought the ignition control module was suspect, even though it looked pretty new. NAPA gave me a new one for free and warrantied the old one.....SCORE! Didn't solve the problem. Mechanic co-conspirator said I should put in a new starter motor. Was able to drive it after that but it was running iffy, and it cut out a few times on the road.

Had an extra set of plugs so we swapped those yesterday, which helped but we noticed some vacuum leaks, the big one being the intake manifold gasket....sucks but I knew it was going to happen at some point, might as well get it over with. Soaking the bolts with the ol' aerokroil in preparation for the procedure.....

My F150, after an engine rebuild, the wiring to the coil from the ignition control box, it had a connector that corroded, unplugged it, sprayed it with WD40, slide the connection in/out till it wore off corrosion and it fired right up. Get some electrical spray and clean up all connection points on the engine, while you are at it, put a 4 gauge wire on the engine block to the frame then battery, sometimes that will cause problems due to the Duraspark unit grounding on the body.

This is dumb, but I always recommend it. How are your grounds? The two times I have had a vehicle cut out on me was because of the battery ground not being tight.

This town ain't big enough for the both of us
And it ain't me who's gonna leave

Not dumb at all, but maybe we are, becase we didn't pull out the multimeter.....yet. My buddy is reallly good w/ electrical so if it's a ground problem we'll find it.

Whew, ground the rust from the floor up front, then I put rust converter down, will paint over it tomorrow, my steel floor pans come in Wednesday, I'll cut out at the doghouse when I can lay them in to mark it out, floor has high places, not sure why but that will prevent the doghouse from sitting down right, may need to get the 3 pound hammer out after it.
