    "So you think I should change all connectors on that gang? You know after I cleaned those grounds that's when I started having the no spark. " By all means,If thats when the No Spark started,I'd go over them and check again!

    When it stops raining I'm going to have to check out this 93 I have here to verify what I think I remember! LoL! Meanwhile, Check at the back of the engine to make sure that the bracket at the back is not chaffing the main harness to the ecm! They have a problem with that.

    42-47 psi at key up is what the big boys down at the pool hall claim it should be. Check the FPR for leakage at the vacuum line,If there is fuel in it, it's faulty! Otherwise I'd suspect the FP.
