I am sorry, but I am getting postings showing up that have been confusing me. There have been a few problems with the web page. I have been getting postings that have no reply from the people I am communicating with (which I think is what happened with yours). As a result, I have posted back, let me know what you find. Then I have not been receiving replies from people who have sent me replies. I was told that everything has been taken care of, so I hope you receive this and understand.
I reread everything we discussed since day one. Here is what I have come up with. First, understand that fuel pressure (35 PSI) with the key in the run position is alread high. According to Mitchel online, the fuel pressure should be between 9 and 13 PSI. When you disconnect the injectors, that should not change. What happens is the pressure is increased when in the start position. Since the regulator is vacuum operated and there is no vacuum because the engine does not start, it allows the pressure to increase.
My concern is this, like I mentioned, according to Mitchele online, the pressure should be much lower, 9 to 13 PSI. I know you checked the regulator. I really believe you have a bad fuel pressure regulator or the wrong fuel pump. Try pulling the fuse for the fuel pump to see if it will run for a short period of time. Also, I have contacted one of my friends on this issue who is a great mechanic. We discussed your problem and he agreed with me with my diagnosis. He plans to read the post and offer his advice to you too. Let me know what happens when you remove the fuel pump fuse.
Again, I am sorry about the confusion. I believe everything is fixed so it should not happen again. I want this thing running too. I do not like getting beaten by any automotive problem.
