Dude, bros...
« on: October 11, 2021, 08:04:58 PM »

It's been too long.  Hope you are all doing well.  Well, everyone except for widebody93. 


I live in Michigan now. 
I bought a turbo ek coupe that keeps eating distributors within 10 minutes of idling.  Would you be able to throw me a troubleshooting bone? What should I look at first?


I will be soon be posting the sequel to My Failure Vacation where I recount the hilarious and cocaine ridden escapades of my brother and his succubus after we parted ways in Florida in 2010.  Stay tuned my friends.

Check battery voltage while running.

Can’t wait for the second chapter from the story.

I also hope Chris M is not doing well. Hitler ass wannabe

The grounds to the driver seat had been clearly cut and soldered and then over heated.  Found a circuit trace in the main relay blown.  I ran new larger gauge wire for the fuel pump grounds and soldered in a jumper over the blown out trace in the  main relay.  Only 1 relay pulls in in the main relay.  The I'm thinking the relay soldered to the board may be dead also.

The main relay has two relays internal to it.  Using the manual amd a multimeter, I proved the main relay is fine.  Fuse 44 in the engine bay fuse box was missing.  Replaced it and it popped when I tried it again.  Now I'm down to troubleshooting via process of elimination to find the short.  I'll let you know how it goes.

if you have a working car around id try a different main relay, i've had issues like you are having and rather than chase a ghost its good to know its a working part you can test in a different car. i also wired the pump directly and what not but never could trust that relay.

I feel like this is all a huge waste of time and money if we can't be as we always have been here. Fire away as far as I'm concerned. with an "a" or "r" at the end. lol
