RE: Wiring question
How much are fuel pressure gauges? I'll buy one next time i go past my parts store.

Ill spin my dst 180 if i can, not much room on top of the engine. Maybe i got confused about which end of the rotor was the contact end. I'm doubting everything at this point Smile

RE: Wiring question
Fuel pressure test kits can be had for under $50. I see one on Amazon.com for $29 that will do most vehicles having a threaded test port on the fuel line. The more expensive kits will have an adaptor to also check pressure "dead head" on the pump. (pump only) For most cases you will be checking with all lines connected and that also verifies the pressure regulator is holding steady within spec while running.

As far as enough room, if you had enough to remove it then you have enough to pull it half way up and spin the rotor 180 degrees.

BTW, #1 cyl should be the front on the drivers side. (for a USA van)

RE: Wiring question
The warm temps fell off and the high pressure system moved out so its chilly and cloudy so its been a day or two since ive touched it, but ill see if my locak parts plis has a fuel pressure gauge. I can't see why not.

Rotor: yeah this is true. I'll keep you posted. I finally got some decent sleep so I might take a crack at it in the morning.

RE: Wiring question
When you are facing a problem that doesn't seem to make sense it can be good to doubt everything. Short story from last week: The boss told me that the safety switches were screwed up on his lawn tractor and you had to jiggle the peddles & levers to get it to start. So; instead of doubting him and doing it right and starting at the beginning, I spent 4 hours jumpering around the safety switches. Then; since that didn't do anything, I jumpered around the ignition switch. Then; when everything was eliminated and it still wouldn't start, I went to the basics, where I should have started. I put the battery charger on it and it started right up. I removed all of my jumpers and hooked the safety switches back up and it starts perfectly every time. So all tolled, I have about 6 hours invested in a 10 minute job just because I didn't follow my own rules of starting with the basics and doubting what someone else tells me. I'm hoping that you will find a simple solution by doubting everything and going to the basics.

RE: Wiring question
Stripped out the fuel inlet threads on my fuel meter body today. Can't find the part and a new tbi assembly costs 600. Time to hit the salvage yard.

Bummer!

Good luck and keep us posted.

I'm going on vacation for a few days next week but Garner will be around if this drags on.

RE: Wiring question
Well, I guess that means you aren't taking me with you on vacation again.

RE: Wiring question
That's' right... and I am not taking that sweet young thing I met at the bar either. Rolleyes

Matter of fact, this one is basically the old lady's vacation and I just tag along. Wink

Not to worry, it's a short one!

Oh, my wife recently bought a tablet so I may check into the message board as long as I don't have to type much. (darned touch-screen is a pain!)

All right, back to business. So have we made any progress on this car?

RE: Wiring question
I had to take a break from it for a little. My winter beater has developed an overheating problem
