Spin-On Fuel Filter In Fuel Line Prevents Plug-ups
Rodney Remley, Eaton, Ohio: "I had trouble with the fuel tank on my 1981 Ford F-250 rusting from condensation and then plugging the fuel filter. I'm sure it's a problem on any pickup with a steel fuel tank. To solve the problem, I installed a 3/4-in. dia. spin-on fuel filter in the fuel line. It's the type used on portable fuel tanks. I've had no trouble since. The spin-on filters are avail-able for about $15 at any tractor supply or farm supply store.
"Also, I'm planning on building a 40 by 60-ft. shop and intend to dig a pit for a bay to grease and change oil in my vehicles and machinery (see diagram). A friend of mine did this when he put up his shop recently and it's a much more convenient way of servicing equipment than installing a lift. Depending on size of shop and length of vehicles, you can dig a pit and use concrete block for walls for as little as $3,000. So it's also more economical than most lifts."
