Expert:  Ron replied 8 months ago.

Okay are you also lacking spark?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
Customer: replied 8 months ago.
we have changed the spark plugs, distributor, tested injectors with ownes meter registered good, check the fuel filter and pump reading good.Straight current to injectors bump bump sprayed good. Why the injectors not coming on and staying on? Would the safety netural switch play a part in this problem? Before had to push in clutch to suppress the safety netural switch, now do not have to engage clutch to start or turnover.
Expert:  Ron replied 8 months ago.

No the neutral safety switch has no control over spark and injector pulse. Are you sure you have power and ground to the computer. The injectors as well as the computer get there power from the main relay. Once you have power at the injectors they are controlled by the ground switch signal from the computer.

where is the ground switch to the computer located? Is it near the coil?d Do the coil need to be grounded?
Expert:  Ron replied 7 months ago.

The ground is not a switch its 2 wire the connect from ground to pins 107 and pin 109 at the computer. See the link below.
