Re: [T3] FI doesn't want to run

If you've fuel, spark at the plugs and compression, you should get a bang
somewhere unless the spark isn't on the firing stroke.
Could try a squirt of fuel in the manifold to narrow down the missing
If the timing light flashes for 1 and 3 in the approx right crank position (ie
timing notches visible), any chance the leads are wrong in the cap?
Check by hand the compressions match the rotor arm position?
