She Lives !!!!!
Since its supposed to rain for the next 5 days I took advantage of the warm night and finished cleaning the injectors, put on orings, installed them... found the wiring on the firewall side wasn't long enough so I had to disasemble the alt mounts on that side and relocate the main harness. Boy thats a tight squeeze by the alt. I put the mounts back on and went for the fuel rail. I pulled the mounts again to make getting hte rail ineasier...LOL
After wasting half an hour trying to get the fuel rail in and onto the injectors I gave up on that method and pulled the injectors and put them in the fuel rail. That works much better, trust me.
reconnected the remaining wiring and vac lines and gave it a test fire. it took a few tries but she fired up and the idle smoothed right out. I shut her down and closed up shop for the night. It had been raining for about an hour by then :(
only two problems.
One; the o-rings that come with the Dorman are too narrow. Make sure you get the right ones from the parts store. I'm glad I had them but I was looking forward to returning them when I saw the Dorman had 'em already.
two, when I put the alt brackets back in, I don't have enough slack to connect the 1 vacume line that connects to the brake booster connector. Can someone post a pic of how its supposed to go please? My pics didn't include that specifically.
Well thanks for following along so far. Its been an adventure for me
