    Bob,

    It was a bit colder on Friday, but the wind was the real issue. WHEN the sun DID shine and the wind died down it was pleasant, otherwise it was a bit "nippy".
    I agree Gary. I'm so forgettable you forgot I was there also Friday

    Claude,

    When it first died I had cracked the fuel line past the filter that is mounted on the radiator support. When I realized I was not getting fuel, I had a guy tow me out of the fuel lane. In my haste I forgot to tighten the line back up. It was not leaking fuel, but it was drawing air in. The truck ran fine for the 30 mile trip back home.

    Speaking of York, I finally got my rollback home tonight. To expedite things, I had a mobile mechanic put the new fuel lift pump on it Thursday so I could have my wife drop me off and bring it home.

    After I met the mechanic there and paid him the truck would not start. I check both fuel filters and they were low. Filled them up and was able to get the truck to crank. However, it died within 2 minutes. Would not start and filled the filters again with the same result.

    Pulled the pump and was able to actuate the arm and get fuel. Filled the filters again and got it started only to have it die again. Tried another time with the same result. Put a test light on the kill switch and was getting power but could not hear of feel it "click". I pulled the housing and pulled the spring off the switch and put everything back together and filled the filters again. Once again it started and then died in a little over a minute.

    Filled the filters again and checked my lines and filters for tightness. Turns out the line from the primary filter was loose (from when it first died at the pump) and upon tightening it, off I went. My wife and youngest daughter waited 2 hours for me to do all this, but at least I got the truck home.

    So you are saying it was sucking air. Very common problem.

    Right on, 58. It was about 38-40 degrees with clear, sunny skies, not a lick of snow anywhere. It also was rather windy, which was cold, but without that it would have been downright pleasant!

    I ended up leaving early as my employees called and told me we were getting heavy snow at the time, and I'd better get started home.

    So, it's all in your perspective, I guess!

    Been there, one time. I don't care what they say, PA is a great place to visit. It sure isn't the BIGGEST swap meet on Earth, by any means. But, it is to-the-point, because York has waaaay more Studebaker parts and Studebaker People than any all-makes swap meet I have ever attended.
