Okay, I need a bit of a reality check. I just changed out my manifold and put on a e-brock 1406. Hooked everything back up...minus a few obscurities (EGR...who needs a stinking EGR) Anyway, when I go to start it up, it turns but doesn't catch.
It is an 86 318 with ESA. I have spark at the coil (w 12V on + and -), I took the fuel line off and when the engine is cranking it spurts fuel (really, it spurts..not sure if it should flow). My PCV hose broke in the change-over which I haven't replaced, but I don't think that should stop the truck from starting. It will start to run , but as soon as I let off hte key...she stops. Any ideas from the guru's
Thanks in advance.
70's would be nice, the next item on the agenda is digging into the carb. It has only been used for a month prior, but it sat awhile. Maybe a good cleaning would work wonders. But Ialso dont know if I ever plugged the old vac lines coming off the EGR..damn, now I have to find them.
Got it going at lunch today, ready for this...there was a little blockage in the fuel input to the carb. Now I just have to tune her later...idle is way too high, even with the screws tightened down. and she smokes like a sumabitch...hopefully that has something to do with the idle and fuel.
