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

Hey, send me a picture of your setup when its all done :-)

There are only a few things that will give a no start on the FI, assuming
you have it connected up correctly.

One is an open head temp sensor, bad trigger contacts, bad ground, open
winding in the pressure sensor... all assuming you have fuel pressure of

I have thought about squirting something down it's throat to see if it's a 
fuel issue.

 Ignition timing is spot on, as I even pulled the valve covers to verify 
their position in relation to the dizzy rotor. Wire leads are in their
position too, as I made sure of that before I got too far along.

 I'm sure if this engine had seen some run time, it would have accepted the 
FI much easier (plus I'm new to the FI on these cars, as I'm a carb guy :O )
and probably been running by now, but it was rebuilt over 2 years ago, then
sat with nothing happening to it until I put it in my 71 Square. It took me
while to slowly gather up all the bits and pieces that I needed to put the
system together. Thanks for all the help.
