If you remove a spark plug wire and crank the engine, do you have spark?
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
yes, i do get spark..............this is a new rebuilt engine long block install.............also there is a vacuum line coming from a t fitting from the round ball tank at the back of hood that I do not know where it goes.
Expert:  Dave Nova replied 7 years ago.
The vacuum line from the vacuum reservoir (ball), one goes to the intake manifold, the other goes in through the firewall to the a/c system. Since you have spark, the next thing to check is fuel pressure. Make sure the fuel pump runs for 2 seconds each time the key is turned on. Test fuel pressure with a gauge. Fuel pressure should be 41-47 psi.

do you have guess where the hose goes on the intake manifold.......been looking and can't find any spot for a hose..........will get a pressure gauge and check fuel pressure....will be awhile, since only one car running and wife has it at school (teacher)
Expert:  Dave Nova replied 7 years ago.

The vacuum diagram I have is not a good quality. Looks like it comes off the manifold behind the throttle body.

big fat zero on the pressure gauge..........will order a new fuel pump, sure hope that is it due to the high price of a new pump
