Repairing the Scout

It's been a while since I posted about the problem with the Escort I had been driving.

Unfortunately it still will not start, despite a new timing belt, new plugs, new TFI module, new plug wires, new rotor, new distributor cap, new coil and new waterpump (had to remove it to change the timing belt and it looked warn).

We have given up on the Escort for now as it's cost us a lot of money in parts and we have had no luck in restoring it to operational status so we have gone back to working on the Scout.

Today we ordered a new fuel pump to replace the one that is currently spraying gas everywhere and leaking fuel into my Oil, Checkers had it for about $60 which is about half the price it was when the Scout broke and we decided to hold off on repairing it due to the cost of the part needed when we had other working vehicles.

I'm looking forward to getting the Scout back on the streets again, It's nice and warm out and I want to take the hard top off and maybe even fold the windshield down and go adventuring with it.
