Shot it with the PB, ate breakfast, went back downstairs. Broke the fuel line. Muttered a few curses. Went back upstairs.

Morty you should be seeing 41-47 PSI... You are low...

I'd be checking both the FPR and the Fuel Pump...

Agreed. As an FYI - The filter was clogged really badly. For Bill'* reference, almost as bad as the 94'* was.

I'd still like to know how the FP test went. Because I know I was testing them wrong. I have a feeling Morty'* test might have been done wrong as well.

Did you follow the test procedure in the book?

I hooked up the fuel pressure gauge and started the car. Took a moment to catch and spiked to 32 PSI for about a heartbeat then settled around 31 PSI. I tweaked the throttle and it dropped to 29 PSI before climbing slowly back up to 30-31 PSI.

To answer your question though, I did not use the diagnostic procedure in the book.

You know the crazy thing is, the FSM doesn't even show a recommended replacement interval for the fuel filter (at least not that I have seen). That is nuts!

I agree... Its totally nuts... And both of my filters were clogged to the point I could hardly blow through the filter... And I had replaced that filter 4 years earlier... And the 91 LE had the Original at 14 years I think... It too was plugged...

When I did the 97 I immediately told cough someone cough to change theirs...

Mine was totally clogged. I don't know how anything was going through it.

Its done. I learned. New line is being put on. I'm just hoping that the pump can hang on until the end of the month.
