I got back on the TBI - HEI install yesterday. I finished up and went to fire it up ... nothing just crank....
I started on trouble shooting this morning. It has spark, has tach, check engine light is on and stays on thru crank. Figured out that i wasn't getting gas.
I called Howell, he had me check this and that. I finally figured out that i had my fuel line / return lines switched. I hook up the pump to the correct line and left the return line dangling. Fire it up... starts right away, and idles half-way decent. About then i realize my garage floor is covered with gas. Didn't realize the return line,returned that much gas.... doh!!!!
I turn off it off. I ran hoses and got the lines all hooked up the way that they are supposed to be. Went to fire it up again... nothing... just crank, but this time I am getting fuel. I called Howell back, he said try to floor it, this will cut off all fuel, since maybe its flooded. Well it didnt cut off all fuel but it did sputter to a start, but just dies when I let off gas.
I am frustrated and don't know what I am missing.
