The noise was predetonation I think

Took the IC out and the distributor seemed loose and after some painfull reaching got it to seat well. The rear clip on the dist. is PITA to get on. The fuel line fidling (when I installed the rear 044) must have popped the rear clip loose.

I now have two 044 pumps so fuel supply should be enough unless there are other problems in wiring or FD. I hope to get her logged next week.

How does the front fuel pump relay power the AAV? The wiring diagram on the workshop pdf are so messy I can't follow them. I saw a pic here that had descriptions of the plugs in the relay and none of them was to AAV. IIRC two went to CDI and 78 to pump, 30 being always hot.

Did you mean the pumps should have run when I had my 40A gauge at the 30 and 78 plugs? Nothing happened, maybe the contact was not enough?
