    It's alive /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/pimp1.gif Only ran the TBI for about 3 seconds though. I need to run it for real tomorrow in the light to check for burning wires, gas leaks, coolant leaks, etc....

    The first time I tried to start it- no go. I figured I wired something wrong, but as it turns out, I put in a bad fuse to the ECM to start with /forums/images/graemlins/blush.gif- what an idiot /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Put in a good fuse /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif, and boom, on she came /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    Congrates, It's a big project switching to fuel injection and just so satisfying when it is finally together and works.

    Naw, neither, some guy was kind enough to let me steal it off his wrecked blazer, and even was cool enough to let me take a shower at his place when I was done /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif

    And NO, JERRY YOU CAN'T HAVE IT BACK /forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif /forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

    How long did it take you? I have a TBI setup for my '79 K10 but need to get it done in a weekend if possible to get me back to work...

    9 days, after work-5 hours a day, weekends- 5am to 9pm. I could have saved 8 hours by buying an aftermarket harness, but they are pricey.
