Car back together, damn thang will not start. Battery is fine starter lead is connect right. There is nothing, pump comes on. Will not even try turn over. The only thing that I did not put back was a bar that went to lower to upper an the back of intake. Any insight? I know it something simple that I am missing. thanks

i need help!!2

hey whats up,my name is nick and i have a similiar problem,i yanked my motor out and bored it etc,before i pulled it every thing was fine[electrical] but when i installed it back in the damn fuel pump doesnt want to come on, i pulled the pump out of the tank and put my battery to it and it spurted fuel like no tommorow,the pump is brand new, i changed the relay under the drivers seat and still no power to the pump, then for ****s and giggles i pulled the wire from the coil to the cap and rolled it over jumping the silinoid and i had no spark ,but,when i pulled the little plug out of the distributer i get a spark, i checked the strap to the back of the driver side head,its snug and the one on the back of the intake is snug as well,i have no clue what is wrong,any insite would greatly be appreciated,thanks for your time...:confused:

starter solinoid. i just put my engine back together, i had the same problem.

also, for the fuel pump, there is an orange connecter in your engine compartment, on the driverside near the firewall, make sure that is attached, and of course, check your starter solinoid

Barney50 what strap on intake are you talking about. Are you talking about the bar on the back of the intake. It will not fit my TFS track heat. Too tall

There's a single wire with a 90 deg boot that connects to the starter solenoid. This supplies voltage from the starter circuit. It slips over the post on the solenoid. Is there voltage on it when the key is turned to the the start position? The solenoid itself must be case-grounded through one of it's sheet-metal mounting screws. Some stangers have painted or otherwise not mounted and grounded these and have similar probs.



Good Luck
AJ
