    alright, it started will a long starting problem and gage not being correct, so dropped the fuel tank comes out to being needing a hole fule tank assembely, so bought one out or a 88 k5 used, thought that may work, well put it in and the gas gage reads backwards and ( don't now if the fuel pump is supposed to run when i turn the igntion on or not) the fuel pump does not turn on. checked the fuses don't now if it is the realy or not. does the fuel asemblies match up or not ( i have a throttle body injection in mine) the 88 did have one in it, thought i would post it because yall have helped me out alot before /forums/images/icons/grin.gif . thanks.

    buddy the 88 did have TBI on it. it ran, i promise ya. i'm not trying to bull$hit you out of some money. just go back and double check the wires where you spliced them in. or maybe that pump sitting there that long just doesn't work anymore.

    and if you aren't happy with it, bring it back and i'll give you half of the money back you gave me for the seats and fuel assembly. i know what TTT means = to the top, but what the he!! does to the top mean? I'm retarded so just slap me whenever you see fit.

    maybe the ground is not connected to the fuel pickup / gage assembly
