My daughter has an '82 245 in Chico, CA that stalled out and will not restart...I have tried to run her through the usual suspects to no avail.

Anyone up there know someone? Cost is not an issue.

No problem. It is as helpful to know whom not to use versus whom to use.

Perhaps I should post a pic of my daughter (not). She is helpful for handing you tools as you point to them and is a quick study.

She should be able to get the 8 screws out of the glovebox, remove that and find the double wide white fuel pump relay?

Don't forget the glovebox courtesy light will come on with it removed, so the glovebox will need to be reinstalled or the bulb removed.

It is an '82 so the relay is not the white one right? It os the one year only LH 1.0.

Could still be the black / dark red / green K-jet relay on the driver's side I'm not sure.

Easier to look for / find that one in any case.

Either that or she ran it around on low on gas in the heat and fried the in tank pump?

Thanks for the hints...

That was my thought as well, but she really does not drive it too often (6-10 miles a day). She is still not comfortable with the manual trans.
