Re: [T3] won't quite start]

The pressure sensor is out of the '73 and is hooked up at booth ends, the csv is not
wired up all I had was one wire to it and I disconnected it, I still can't get it to
start, although, it it acts like it's trying to start but then it just turns over. oh
and no, I have not had this running before this only if I put gas in the airbox. I
got an email about some switch for the gas pump that changes it from start to run???
so that's where I'm at for the moment.
