OK, I haven't actually tried this yet, due to working by myself. It's kinda 
hard to hear over the starter and such things while up front.

I'll try this also, like I said before I'm just looking for things I might 
have over looked. I was going to pull the injectors today, and verify if they 
were spraying.

I've checked the harness, both before I started hooking things up (with it 
out of the car), so that I could repair anything if it needed it while I could 
still get to it, and after it was installed (to verify the correct connections. 
remember I am using a t-4 harness, but everything is hooked up like a 71 t-3 
(thank god for a Bentley manual).

Pump is running long enough to fill the ring, and I can even hear the 
bubbling in the fuel tank, along with the air rush out of the ring, back in the 
engine compartment. I've got the fuel pressure gauge installed in the engine 
compartment, and that's where I'm taking my reading for the fuel pressure. The t-4 
D-jet system has the fuel gauge tap just like the t-3 uses. : ) Thanks for all 
the help.
