Bill, no offense but I've got 2 reason for asking that. Well ...make that three.
First, the damage was in the HB/Crank sensor area and it seems to me that we need to be sure thats fixed right before changing our focus.
Second, I think we're chasing ghosts on that fuel pressure issue. What I think were seeing here is a fast bleed down rate so that by the time he gets back to the rail, after the 2 sec prime, is low pressure and the pump wouldn't turn on again until rpm'* come up. He did jumper the pump, got pressure, and it still wouldn't run, but probably should have.
Lastly, I'm not afraid to put out a theory and learn something if I'm wrong.
So, see any holes in my logic so far?
