RE: [DML] Fuel issues - Replaced nearly everything



Many of the parts you mentioned came from us so a warm thank you is in order
for your support. Although we?re busy prepping for the show feel free to
contact us for tech support when needed.  First the plunger must be down to
ground, and operate, the fuel pump. Next confirm the fuel pump is operating
when cranking the engine before you proceed. Next you should unclip one
injector from the head and perch it over a metal or plastic container. Have
some one crank the motor and look for a light stream of fuel at the nozzle
tip. If none appears turn the CO adj. screw clockwise until a small stream
appears. The car will not start if this adjustment is out by more than a
turn or two and a new distributor almost always needs adjusting to make the
engine start. Call if you need more info.

Subject: [DML] Fuel issues - Replaced nearly everything


I have posted in the past here, and have gotten some really good 
So here is my issue...

I ordered alot of new fuel parts for my car from one of the vendors.
I got all of the lines plugged in, and all of the new fuel 
components attached to my car. I replaced the battery, because the 
old one would not keep a charge, and the car will not start. I have 
absolutely no idea why. 

The starter seems to crank, I am not 100% certain about the status 
of where the plunger needs to be on the fuel cutoff switch (up or 
down), but i have it pulled up, and I am getting just repeated 

I unscrewed a line at the top of the fuel distributor, I could hear 
air leak out, and gas, but the car would not fire. 

Here is what I have put in new
New fuel line from the pump to the hard line.
New Accumulator
New Fuel Distributor
New Fuel filter
New Lines the 13 pack... so all the lines coming off the filter into 
the engine bay of the car are new and of the stainless braided 
New Banjo bolts - all of them new (but one, I broke it, cleaned out 
an old one of the same and used it)
I Scrubbed out the tank with acetone and let dry.
New Warm-up regulator
New battery
No baffle, for extraneous reasons - me breaking it - I have the 
Special T Auto setup. When i previously had it in the tank, it 
worked like a charm. That is what I get for having it hold the line 
to the bottom of the tank for the syphon.
4 gallons of new gas (bought it today)
New fuel pump.
New Fuel tank filter screen.
New injectors (6 of them)
New rubber thingys that attach to the injectors.

Followed the diagram which is present in one of the news sites. 

All is connected very tight... The one I broke, i tightened too 
much, and it just twisted itself off at the hole, the hole did not 
seem to be crushed. Checked others and the holes in the banjo bolts 
are not squished.

How much gas do all of the components have/hold?

It cranks and cranks but does not turn over... Thoughts?

Could it be too much air in the system, and if so, would it not be 
sent back via the return line to the tank? or do i have to wait for 
the air to make it out of the injectors.
