Re: [DML] Re: Warm Start Issue -- Looking Elsewhere Than Fuel System (David McKeen)

I'd look at the connectors on the big ignition
resistor on the firewall.  Also check the connectors
right at the coil.

It may also be helpful to carry a timing light with
you.  Next time it does not start, see if you have
spark (using the light).

It is possible that a problem in the ignition
electronics are not activating the fuel pump relay.. 
Once you try it a few times something may change in
the system that give you enough power to get a good
spark... and keep the pump relay closed.

OR..(shameless plug)  come to the DMA Spring social on
April 26, and have a few more people check it out in
