Thought I'd ramble a little to try and recover my sanity. Seems like everything
I've started I get my dick stepped on.

Decided to get the new 044's installed and test the fuel system and of
course the fuel pumps wouldn't run. Went through the fuel system wiring.
cleaned connectors, rang all the wiring, new relays, new correct fuses, all
safeties good, all grounds cleaned an checked. "ALL RIGHT" pumps run ........
but no fuel coming through WTF. Pull both pumps back out and power each
to test, no fuel moving at all not even a drop. Now, these are new pumps
so, I'm thinking maybe there is a punch out plug installed in one of the two
ends. I start taking the fittings apart and looking for a plug somewhere and
I notice the pumps come with check valves installed on the outlet ends. I take the
check valves off and don't see any plugs so I picked up a check valve and
blow through it, nothing, no air moving, the check valves were installed
backwards. Needless to say two 044 Bosch fuel pumps will blow gas the
length of my drive way if the check valves are installed correctly.

Two New 044's :

Tried to get some loose ends done so we can try starting the Old Girl:

I Installed a pressure transducer to log control pressure back to the SSI-4
I made a mounting bracket and installed the transducer in the CP line
between the WUR to the fuelhead

Finished up the wiring for the lights, installed the bulbs, and I now know how
Thomas Edison felt:

Took last week off for our yearly Road Trip to Mayo for the Cancer check ups
and all is well with the Old Guy and especially for my sweet sweet daughter.

I'm just starting to put together an air intake for the CIS. Trying to get a
lot of clean, cool air. Once that's done I will reinstall the IC and we will fire
this old tub up !!!!!

Can you say 5" intake air stack !!!!
