    I am in a time crunch, trying to get her back running by tomorrow.

    Went to do a tune up on my 87 K5 with the 350 TBI. I installed a new fuel filter, cap, rotor, plugs and plug wires. Put everything back together as published, and she'll crank, but not start. Running when I started the project...now not so much.

    Checked the spark from a few wires, let's just say I felt it...

    Pulled a plug, it was dry as a bone, turned it over without the plug in, no fuel to be seen.

    HELP!!!!!

    I rechecked the fuel filter i put in, fuel there, no problem.

    I had crank times of four-five seconds before the tune up (or tune down)...

    Is it the pump?!?!?

    Thanks for the replies, sorry for not searching!

    Checked it three times now, and if i reverse any of them, it sounds awful cranking. Crank sounds normal, I think they're in the right order.

    Also, it's spraying fuel down into the valves just fine...

    Mine wasnt getting fuel either once after i bounced it around trying to pull a friend out of deep sand, after we realized it was getting no fuel to the TBI we checked the fuses and sure enough it was just a popped fuel pump fuse.




    Double check your fuses, you might have popped one during the tune up.
