6.5TD lift pump wiring
Morning guys, several of you think that I have a problem with the Oil Pressure Switch that is causing the problem that I have with my engine when I first start it and drop it into gear.
I have a question. I absolute HATE "Automatic" stuff, because it usually STOPS "being automatic" at the worst times, my lift pump for example. I am a pilot, and am used to having fifteen switches for systems that are NOT automatic, and I have never forgotten to throw a switch yet.
Why not just run a wire from the positive side of the battery, or the "Run" terminal on the ignition switch in the truck? Run it from there to a switch of the plastic steering column cover, and from there to a fuse, and then on to the lift pump. THEN the OPS can just be for the Oil Pressure Gauge, and I have an EASY way to bleed the fuel rails without having the engine on?
(You guys ought to see all the switches on the panels of my Jeeps, and the F-350, they look like the panels of a Winston Cup car).
