RE: [DML] Engine cranking

Sean, What Rob said was correct, but you may have gone a little too lean or
counter clock. Make sure you have no vacuum leaks and go clock with the 3mm
wrench in very small steps.

Subject: [DML] Engine cranking

I posted here a few weeks ago about trying to get my car started 
after replacing the entire fuel system (all except the gas tank) I 
have found that the correct position for the inertia switch plunger 
is down. :-)... So i got the car up and running with a terrible 
idle... ranging from just over 600 to about 1200 swinging up and 

Recieved a post from Rob, and he stated that I may need to adjust my 
air intake adjuster knob/3mm allen wrench adjustable bolt under what 
appears to be a bottle brush handle between the distributor and the 
air filter setup. 

So my point is that I did have the car running. I tried to start her 
up tonight (it ran saturday), and it started up for a second, then 
died. It will no longer restart at this point in time. It just seems 
to crank non-stop without the incling of a turnover (which would be 
nice to hear).

I did validate that the pump is pumping gas, and you can hear it and 
the frequency valve when you just turn the key without taking it to 
the start position. 

Any thoughts?
