I was thinking about trying to run another fuel pressure test
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
I was going to do that now I'll try and get back to you later

Sounds good.

Okay here are the results of the pressure test 4 seconds startup 32 psi drops to 30 stays there for 3 or 4 minutes then drops to 29 and stays. Running test that runs rough runs up to 40 PSI but it oscillates about six or more pounds then drops to 35 with engine off and down to 32

Key on engine off it should be between 38 and 44 psi.

Engine running it should be 31 to 36.

Sounds like the fuel pump needs to be replaced. :)

you think that the excess fuel pressure is putting too much fuel in the engine and causing it to run rough flooding it

Very possible!

Fuel pump is a very major job. My wife's about ready to kill me over this car. It will take me awhile to take it out and get a new one to put in I suppose our session will be over by then. This to is costing me a pretty little Penny but seems worth it to me. Like I said this job will take me awhile I'm no longer young I am 70 years old and I'm going to need some young muscle to help me so it's going to take me awhile. Thank you very much.

Sounds good, your welcome!

I am glad I can help!
