As most of you know, I was able to get Josh's Beast out for a 5-6 
mile spin on Sunday.  It ran decent, except for the bogging at about 
2500 rpm.  After I got back, I let it idle for about 1-2 minutes 
before I shut it down so I could check everything.

After it cooled off, I rechecked all the systems to make sure 
nothing was coming loose or falling off.  Everything checked 4.0.

This morning I went to start it and it would not start.  Cranks like 
a champ, but will not even attempt to fire.  I noticed I could not 
hear the fuel pump running or smell even a hint of fuel fumes in the 
engine compartment.  So, I pulled off the RPM relay, jumpered 30 & 
87, and the pump ran like a champ.  Put the RPM relay back in and 
cranked, no fuel pump running.  I swapped the old relay out for a 
brand new one, same results, no pump.  I checked my connection from 
the coil (white/slate) and it is still tight.  I checked all the 
connections to the ballast resistor, they are all tight.  Main fuel 
relay checks 4.0 on the bench.

I know the problem has to be something electrical, in the starting 
circuit, that came loose on the bumpy 1.5 mile county dirt road that 
I live on, but this one has me scratching my head.  Any ideas, 
thoughts, guesses, ????????
