Be carefully when playing with fuel. It's not your battery. If your engine cut's off while driving because of your battery you would not be able to turn over the starter motor.
You have to know which way to go for, is it fuel or not before you make more problems! don't just screw on something you not sure off. Finding 1 problem is not easy but finding 2 of them is hard. do you have a manual the make the right adjusting to the fuel head?
Good advice. Tail chasing leads to more tail chasing. There's definitely something funky going on.
Seems to be related to the earlier post where he monkeyed with the fuse panel and nothing worked thereafter...but now the pumps do run? Hmmm. If the pumps can be kept running, then fuel must flow if the metering arm is depressed far enough. Does the metering arm move freely, or is it stuck?
Mark H. 1987 930, GP White, Wevo shifter, Borla exhaust, stock everything else. The result of a massive Pelicanite good will fire recovery effort. Truely an open book, ready for the slippery slopes to modification.
