    I have spark, and fuel pressure is 58 psi and drops to 52 when relay clicks off. I will pull the cap and rotor in a day or two just to check it. It is suppose to rain tomarrow.

    Woody367- I have been following both of your threads, so to not confuse me or anyone else, do not start any more and we will get you going and finish any other questions here.
    What I need from you is All your vehicle specifics, maintenence history and results of prior work.
    For fuel pressure, 1) test at key on engine off, 2)cycle key 3-4 times to on to see if pressure rises above 1).
    3) engine idling 4) driving 5) time on leak down when key off. Asking for more because I've seen only one of this vintage runs at 58#, One wouldn't run at #61.(same guage).
