Hello and welcome. My name is ***** ***** you for visiting the site, I will be happy to assist you today.
I think the hot smell could be from the catalytic converter getting too hot from running lean.
You will have to see what the fuel pressure is on it. There are some special adapters that are used on it. However, I normally check at the filter with a 'tee' fitting and rubber hoses.
Let me know what the fuel pressure is and we can go from there, thanks
