Yeah I have considered just taking the plunge once I finally finish up cleaning up my tailgate, I have your thread from 2013 bookmarked.You can just cut the liftgate that you have. Once you do the conversion - you won’t go back.
Seems like you have a fuel tank/pickup issue or a fuel pump issue.
I just have a compressor for filling up the tires right now but maybe that will work. I have seen a little research that looks like it could be the tank not venting too or possibly heat soak of the carb? Not sure. If the shop doesn't find it I'll give that a try. I'm a little concerned the conditions that created it (long highway drive, sat for an hour, more highway driving and sitting for lunch, then issues) make it difficult to reproduce, but I am going to look into the fuel system for sure.If you're brave, try this. Ive seen fuel issues (starvation) like yours where the sock in the fuel tank gets clogged over time from debris. Take the fuel line loose before the fuel pump, and if you have a compressor, shoot a burst or two of compressed air into it towards the tank. That helped my cause once.

I swear every club does stuff the last weekend when I have plans! Ales and Overland's also started up down here for the last weekends of the months. I do want to come up for a 615 meeting thought soon, it needs redemption at completing the trip!Andrew come up to BNA this weekend for the 615 Scout Club meet up and show off your work!

Could have been an air/vapor thingee that cleared itself up. That may have been caused by running the heater to get it up to 100 (joke .. )After driving around town for about 2 hours I did have one time where I went to accelerate, but it felt like I wasn't getting as much power as I should or it wasn't getting as much gas as it should. I have an inline filter between the tank and the pump and the standard after the pump, inline was full but after the pump only had about 1/4 full and a few surges coming though. I'm going to keep an eye on it but hoping that was just a 1 off thing as it didn't have any other issues the rest of the day driving. I have spare filters in the truck just in case those get clogged but both only have about 200 miles on them since the fuel system got a new sending unit and lines all the way through.
Very temperamental for sure, always an adventure when you turn the key.Could have been an air/vapor thingee that cleared itself up. That may have been caused by running the heater to get it up to 100 (joke .. )
Glad it cleared itself out whatever.. Course IH's are like cats, no offense DEW, they will as they see fit on occasion remind us being in control is an illusion (delusion).
Agree.. When I get hit with the why don't you get a 'new' yada yada yada ...two dogs might make that car not long for our world, but having no payments is the best kind of payments.
