    no power, the truck has power and spark, when i put gas down the throttle body it will start, but still no power to the fuel pump, does it have a fuse or anything? it all worked fine until the distributor turned. i already replaced the relay.

    What do you mean by "the fuel pump wont engage" The distributer "engages" the oil pump which can be turned with a long slotted screwdriver through the distributor hole. It can be a pain to get to line up correctly as you stab the distributor in. Last time I checked the fuel pump for a '91 was in the fuel tank and is electric.:o Check your fuses if your not getting gas and/or check for +12V and the ground at the tank going to the pump.

    ok, well they are good, my dad did say something about the ground on the fuel pump, but it just doesn't make any sense why that would be broken, there are also some other wires in my fuse box that got moved around and there is supposed to be some sort of safety on the distrubutor, but i don't know. do i have to do anything special when i re-time it like take any wires loose or anything? what did you need again?

    well the fuel pump has no power to it all of a sudden, before the distributor was moved the fuel pump worked, weird stuff.
