It was once used to smuggle catnip across the border for the Mexican feline cartel, I'm sure.

Time to build a garage shop in the yard.this is what i ussually do. the digging it out of garage and setup really bother me lol.
Remove all bed bolts, 2x4 to hold it up.he just tilted the bed up, probabaly left the last 2 bed bolts in the rear, but loosened almost all the way.
very good analytic problem solving!Let me give you some info on the problem spot on these. Under the intake where the electrical connection goes on the spider. It heat cycles all the time. The plastic clips get brittle, and the connections get just loose enough to cause intermittent issues. They make aftermarket replacement clips, but that was actually worse. I ended up getting a couple zip ties around that connector, and also squeezed the little clips that go on the spider unit so they fit a little tighter. Once I got that, truck ran great.
I went through 3 fuel pumps, and 2 spider units, and a few sensors because of all of the odd codes from the loose connection. When it got bad, once it got hot, it would loose connection all together and shut off. By the time you started working on it, it had cooled down enough it would start again. Drove me crazy for awhile.
im going to look into all of this info. thanks for the help guysthese engines are a little stubborn but once you learn your way around them they are easy to diagnose and run really well.here are some things ive picked up along the way with my SS.on these id recommend only OEM ignition parts,EGR block off plate is a must,and a fixed fuel psi gauge is also a good idea.the best spider is the GB brand on rockauto cheap just over $100 after core and never had a problem.be sure to adjust the torx head regulator on the spider to no lower than 60psi engine on 64psi engine off.the spider connector should definately be replaced and can be bought new as a standard TBI injector connector.hope this helps
thanks zfixer, that was the first one i did and i paid about the same for it. it lasted 12k and about 13 months, 2k and 1 month over warranty .I'm sorry to hear you're having so many problems with your SS Sean. I have the Delphi spider in mine. I paid $185.00 for it and knock on wood, so far so good. I hope your truck starts behaving and you are safely back on the road soon.
