Stripped the 2000 Ford Explorer that I bought for the 302 . I'm going to try to sell off as much of it as I can to recoup some money to go toward the 37 pickup build.

Well, so far I haven't got much done...still building a house with my bud. We're painting walls and ceilings and placing outlets and starting to place fixtures. My next inspection is Pre-power, which in this case will be permanent power because of the way we planned it out. But Thursday morning I woke up to no water at my house. I have a submersible pump down a drilled casing here for my water. I went methodically thru all the tests and determined the problem to be the pump. Everything else tested ok but read trouble down to the pump. OK, ya'll know what I'd do, I'd pull the pump myself...done it before, I can do it again. So I jumped online to Amazon and ordered parts and pieces to do the job and left a few locally obtained pieces until I saw what I had after I got the pump out. Friday, up early to start pulling the pump. Parts will be here Friday night. I'll get them early saturday morning where they get delivered to my daughter's house because delivery trucks can't seem to find my place... . By quitting time I had only moved the pump up about 16 inches... . Last thing I did was sanitize the well with bacterial bleach. Next morning I placed the come along on it and it started coming up easy and I managed to pull it by hand. Cool beans! I got my parts and my buddy Junior stopped by to help with putting it all together and back down the shaft. About dark we had it all back together. New pump, new drop pipe, all new fittings. Before I left to pick up incidentals for the build, I checked everything again to be sure everything else was right.I checked everything right to the end of the circuit driving the pump. 123 volts each leg and good ground to pressure switch, closed switch and read the same power at end of wires to go down shaft. When I fired the pump up, it pumped immediately up to 50 psi where the pressure switch shuts it off. Ok, we have a faucet wide open, the first out of the tank to flush the system as we get sand down here after well work usually taking a good while with everything running to flush the sand. When the pressure got down to 30 psi it should kick back on. The pressure switch operated one time and failed..tried cleaning points to no avail,..sheesh! Back to get parts in the am...

Good luck, smallfoot!
