Default Hello

Hello All,
I have been reading the forum for awhile and decided to finally register. I am a flight mechanic in the US Coast Guard, and have been in for a little over 15 years. I enjoy boating, am totally addicted to fishing, and hope to be an auto mechanic when I retire. Recently my Ranger would just up and die at random times on me. After being stranded on the side of the road several times, I figured out that the fuel pump was dying. With the information I found here it was much easier than I expected. Cheers!

Welcome to FRF! Thank you for your service! My best friend's dad was a flight mechanic (I think) and he retired from the CG. he is now a civilian, but still works at the Elizabeth City, NC Coast Guard base.

also on the fuel pump, if you havnt changed it already, it is easiest to take the bed off to change it. you dont wanna drop the tank, trust me
