RE: [DML] Fuel system put together wrong?



Well it's definitely possible something got crossed.

Surges then drops and dies.

Sounds like pressure issues which could be related to your idle control 
system.  Did you unplug any of the vacuum lines behind the metering unit.  
If you crossed any of them it is possible it's a problem with the vacuum 
solenoid and or the microswitch and idle speed motor.  That switch controls 
the vacuum solenoid which in turn applys vacuum advance during acceleration. 
  The idle speed motor is tied into the same system.

I'd double check all my vacuum lines.  I had a customer recently with an 
idle problem and I traced it to a crack in the vacuum lines at the warm-up 
regulator.  Once replaced the car returned to normal operation.  Then 
another customer earlier whose vacuum lines were hooked up in the wrong 
order from the Ported Switch under the manifold as well as the two lines on 
the vacuum solenoid.

Go back and double check the fuel lines also.  It is possible that you might 
have a few mixed up.

Let us all know what you find.
