Hello, my name is***** will assist you.
Would you please post the serial number of the engine?
Ok, do you have the ability to test the fuel pressure that is coming from the fuel pump?
No worries, there are no time limits here. What you will need to do is to rent a gauge from an auto parts store. Then with the fuel system primed up using the bulb, connect the gauge to part 19 in the diagram. When you turn the key on and the pump runs, you should see about 30 PSI on the gauge. If not, the fuel pump is sticking and it will need to be removed and cleaned.
Great. Let me know what you get, and we can pick it up from there and get this engine running for you.
While at the auto parts store, pick up a compression tester gauge as well. Remove all 6 plugs, install the gauge in one cylinder, crank the engine over a few times and read the gauge. It should be over 90 PSI on all 6 cylinders.
Great, talk to you then.
All you need to do is reply back to this thread, it will come straight to me and when I am online, I will reply back to you.
