Got home about 9 PM from York. Had planned to stay till 3 or 4 but got a call from one of my employees saying it was snowing hard and wanted to make sure I wasn't towing anything home as it might get tricky[:I] Being that I was stopping in Frackville on the way home to look at a 61 Lark rollover, I decided to leave about 1:30. I had gone over to the fairgrounds about 6:30 AM and loaded the Wagonaire on the dolly, and dragged it off out of the way, so I hooked that up and was on my way; quick stop at the York Hooters to pick up an order of wings to go, and hit the road... did meet John and saw the Lark, more on that later.

Trip was uneventful- enjoyable, as usual. That is, until I got just north of Binghamton and hit snow-covered roads... that made the last 90+ miles white-knuckle time[:0] So I'm tip-toeing along in a Ford conversion van with all-season tires (not snows!), wondering what my driveway was going to look like... by the time I turned onto my road, it was snowing hard. As I approached the entrance I was relieved to see it only had a couple inches of snow in it... so I carefully wheel it in. As I start up the mostly-level 180' drive, my headlights revealed a series of snow drifts:( So I give it just a little more loud pedal, and the rear instantly breaks loose, and the left rear, aided by the pushing dolly, immediately heads for the snow bank- jackknife city[xx(] So there it sits- good news is the whole rig's well off the road and I'm in the house; bad news is it's blocking my driveway completely, and both my plow trucks are at my business...... Solution was to call one of the techs that has his own plow truck and bribe him to come and save me; he'll be here in the morning. So all will be well;)

GREAT time at York! This was my first time able to be there Sat., so I was able to attend the STF dinner- had a really good time! Met lots of good folks, and heard lots of good truck stories. Totally eliminated the annoyance factor of being accosted by a hustler trying to talk me out of a dolla'fiddy for his "babydinna" on the way in. Can't wait till the next one! (Dinner that is, not hustler!) Thoroughly enjoyed looking at all the Stude stuff; I realized this weekend that maybe the biggest draw for me to Studes, good people aside, is the incredible availibility of parts! I must have walked through SI's area looking at all the special clips and doodads 20 times, getting caught up in a bin of tiny bits and causing poor Ed- who was trying to work- to repeatedly squeeze by me[:I] Huge numbers of parts of all kinds for any Studebaker out there, NOS, used, repop- you name it! And not one table of cheapo China-made tools to be found[^] Looked over carefully, and photographed, every Stude- any model, any condition;) First thing Friday Gary Hearn got into my pocket for some stuff for Sanford, my M-16; then just a few hours later George O. dragged a forlorn Wagonaire into my life and extracted a few more sheckels. Several trips through the buildings yielded a few more trinkets, and a few more trips to the van...

Of course, the BEST part was the people! I got to meet up with valued friends, and make some more; as well as getting faces to go with Forum names! And we all shared a common quirk- a love for Studebakers[8D]

Thanks to Bob Palma for spending better than an hour yakking with me, whom he identified by my Forum button with bams50 on it from Bondobilly and Ellen... and others too, who found out my name actually is Bob, not BAMS:D Several more of you now have my face and voice to go with the Forum presence (sorry about that). And kudos to JP for still being able to duck a newbie looking to pick his brain- the Artful Dodger:) And thanks for all who helped me briefly immerse myself in all things Studebaker! Can't wait till Lancaster!!

Two regrets: Missed out on the pair of excellent 64 Commander fenders with inners for $20 each[}:)] And the rebuilt 259 for $500 I also missed:(

Oh well- there's always next year! [^]

Spent my whole pay check on some old wreck.

Bought some shiny things for the Speedster and some body panels for one that belongs in a dumpster. Can't wait for nice weather to start cutting, grinding, sanding and painting.

Finally made it back from York at 5:00 today. I hung around last night for a joint dinner at Alexander's with the Central Virginia and Greater Virginia Chapters. I had to go back to the Fairgrounds this morning to swap truck bets with Rich Eierman and hook up the trailer. I finally got on the road around 11:00. Afters pulling off 83 a couple of times I got fuel at Shrewsbury, Pa. Cost me $3.85 a gallon for diesel, the most I have ever paid.

Uneventful trip most of the way with the exception of traffic just below D.C. I elected to stop for fuel about 30 miles north of Richmond to top off the tank due to the cheaper prices. Started up the truck and it went about 10 feet and died in the middle of the fuel island. I cranked it several times and not even a hint it wanted to start.

I did some checking and started cracking lines, no fuel. Drained the primary filter, just a bit of water. Took it off and cranked it over, no fuel at all. I finally got a guy in a Dodge truck to pull me out of the way as a bus driver was about to jump a guy who pulled in front of him.

I called a friend who works on diesels for advice but could still not get it going. Called my wife to come get me and unhooked to trailer to bring that home. Discovered I had bent the tongue on that, so the trip will be costly. I left the keys at the truck stop and will try to get a mechanic to look at it tomorrow.

Probably the fuel filter(s)
Change it/them no matter what.
Buy two sets and keep one set in the truck.
Find out what filter is recommended and do not stick a fuel filter in with a smaller micron rating.
Go with the micron ratine the manufacturer says to install.

Jeff,

I had never done any work on the fuel system of this truck, but I was surprised that there was not a fuel or lift pump on it. I could not find any wires to indicate there was an electric pump in the tank. I did discover that the vent hose on top of the tank was clogged up with mud from a dirt dauber and got that cleaned out. I pulled both the filters and filled then with fuel and still no go. I also pulled the wire on the solenoid and could hear it click when I put it back on, so it appears the shut off is not the problem. I am about out of ideas.

Bob,
Thanks for the great York pictures because I have never made it there. I went to your photobucket, put it on slide show, sat back and really enjoyed it. A lot of work, much appreciated. Your driveway looks like mine, btw..Lake Erie lake effect snow here. Glad the wagon made it alive; Studes, always an extra story. The parts looked plentiful and the weather looked great for the corral..I wanted a running commentary for each picture! The only shot missing was one where you got the "wings to go"...seriously, great job.

Got home about 9 PM from York. Had planned to stay till 3 or 4 but got a call from one of my employees saying it was snowing hard and wanted to make sure I wasn't towing anything home as it might get tricky[:I] Being that I was stopping in Frackville on the way home to look at a 61 Lark rollover, I decided to leave about 1:30. I had gone over to the fairgrounds about 6:30 AM and loaded the Wagonaire on the dolly, and dragged it off out of the way, so I hooked that up and was on my way; quick stop at the York Hooters to pick up an order of wings to go, and hit the road... did meet John and saw the Lark, more on that later.

Trip was uneventful- enjoyable, as usual. That is, until I got just north of Binghamton and hit snow-covered roads... that made the last 90+ miles white-knuckle time[:0] So I'm tip-toeing along in a Ford conversion van with all-season tires (not snows!), wondering what my driveway was going to look like... by the time I turned onto my road, it was snowing hard. As I approached the entrance I was relieved to see it only had a couple inches of snow in it... so I carefully wheel it in. As I start up the mostly-level 180' drive, my headlights revealed a series of snow drifts:( So I give it just a little more loud pedal, and the rear instantly breaks loose, and the left rear, aided by the pushing dolly, immediately heads for the snow bank- jackknife city[xx(] So there it sits- good news is the whole rig's well off the road and I'm in the house; bad news is it's blocking my driveway completely, and both my plow trucks are at my business...... Solution was to call one of the techs that has his own plow truck and bribe him to come and save me; he'll be here in the morning. So all will be well;)

GREAT time at York! This was my first time able to be there Sat., so I was able to attend the STF dinner- had a really good time! Met lots of good folks, and heard lots of good truck stories. Totally eliminated the annoyance factor of being accosted by a hustler trying to talk me out of a dolla'fiddy for his "babydinna" on the way in. Can't wait till the next one! (Dinner that is, not hustler!) Thoroughly enjoyed looking at all the Stude stuff; I realized this weekend that maybe the biggest draw for me to Studes, good people aside, is the incredible availibility of parts! I must have walked through SI's area looking at all the special clips and doodads 20 times, getting caught up in a bin of tiny bits and causing poor Ed- who was trying to work- to repeatedly squeeze by me[:I] Huge numbers of parts of all kinds for any Studebaker out there, NOS, used, repop- you name it! And not one table of cheapo China-made tools to be found[^] Looked over carefully, and photographed, every Stude- any model, any condition;) First thing Friday Gary Hearn got into my pocket for some stuff for Sanford, my M-16; then just a few hours later George O. dragged a forlorn Wagonaire into my life and extracted a few more sheckels. Several trips through the buildings yielded a few more trinkets, and a few more trips to the van...

Of course, the BEST part was the people! I got to meet up with valued friends, and make some more; as well as getting faces to go with Forum names! And we all shared a common quirk- a love for Studebakers[8D]

Problem with diesel fuel filters is that once they clog up with water, or contaminants, or critters...they are all done.
New filters are required.
And there are several spec's (micron ratings) for the amount, or size of contaminants a filter will catch (or pass).
Too small a micron rating could mean a filter that will clean the fuel great, but will clog in a very short amount of time.
Ying/Yang....give & take.
Flushing a diesel filter that is clogged with water, or contaminants will do no good.
Put new filters on (with a pre-fill).
You mentioned primary filter. Do you have secondary filter(s) as well?
Remember that one is a suction side filter and the other is a pressure side filter...
Fuel is a crapshoot at a truck stop. The busier ones tend to be better, as their volume means a faster turn on their tank stock.
If you see the tanker putting fuel into the underground tanks when you pull in...(gas station, or truck stop/diesel)....run away and go to the next station.
The act of filling an underground tank stirs all sorts of crud up, and then you are at the mercy of their final filter at the pump...if they have one and if it has been serviced.
Ever had a pump run real slow?
Betcha a donut the final filter at the pump is clogged...
Hope your problem is easily solved... Start with new filters.
Can't hurt....

Jeff,
I had never done any work on the fuel system of this truck, but I was surprised that there was not a fuel or lift pump on it. I could not find any wires to indicate there was an electric pump in the tank. I did discover that the vent hose on top of the tank was clogged up with mud from a dirt dauber and got that cleaned out. I pulled both the filters and filled then with fuel and still no go. I also pulled the wire on the solenoid and could hear it click when I put it back on, so it appears the shut off is not the problem. I am about out of ideas.

The fact that it started and immediately died is strange; no sputtering or anything. This is a high volume truck stop right on I-95, never had a problem with diesel or gas there. I wonder if I got an air lock of some sort as the vent tube was stopped up? I seem to have power at the solenoid, I guess I will need to tinker with it.

After doing some research I determined that it did have a lift pump that was nicely hidden behind the frame rail and under the alternator. I ordered a new one from IH and went up Tuesday to put it on. It started to rain and there was no lighting where the truck was so I called it a night after installing the new fuel filters.

Rather than having to make multiple trips to work on it and bring it home I called a mobile mechanic to install the pump. Turns out my diagnosis was correct as the arm was broken off. [:0] Anyway, the truck is now back and running again and I will pick it up on Saturday.
