Were you having this issue, before you worked on it? If the computer doesn't see an rpm signal, it won't pulse the injector/s. With bypass ignition system and o/p switch in the fuel pump circuit, it is possible to have spark at the plugs and fuel pressure, engine cranking, even though the computer doesn't see an rpm signal, but, no rpm signal, no injector pulse.

Blazer was running fine and just shut off like someone had turned off ignition switch. Had bad pickup coil in distributor so I replaced distributor, cap, rotor, wires. Can smell and see fuel in tbi after cranking. Where do I go from here? Thanks Chris

Parts store will have the firing order and location of #1 wire on the dist. Cap. Then install the wires going clock wise. Gl
