low power can remove #1 & 4 inj plug, no diff

Well I got it running now. After months of figuring out finally it was the screw for the ref sensor.

Today i did the first test drives. It seems very low on power and may have a intake leak on number 4. (likely contributing)

(It takes 1/4 mile to get to 50mph)

Besides the intake leak what are some other things to look for in a low power?

New spark plugs, cap, rotor, coil
Compression good
New fuel filter checked psi, good

Thanks

If you damaged the reference sensor putting the engine in, you may have damaged the other sensor as well. Check that. I would also look for all vacuum leaks and check your throttle position sensor. clarks garage has a detailed checklist for that.

It turned out that # 2 and # 4 intake gasket had huge! leaks. I have installed new and just in-case all new vac hoses.

With engine idle, removing # 1 and # 4 injector plug causes no difference in running.

I had already tried soaking the injectors.

They have 12v with key on.
A steady noid light with engine idle. (I cant check 2 or 3 because it wont run on one Cly for me)

3 Questions

( Is the noid light supposed to blink?)

What else should I check?

Could ref sensor still be out of adjustment? (or would it not run at all if out of adj)

Thanks
