    350 TBI


    Ok, we just changed the fuel filter, it was bad. We still are not getting any fuel to the TBI. I checked all of the connections and they appear good. There is not any noise comming from the TBI. (no Clicking) If I pour fuel inside of it the truck runs for a second so we have ignition. I pulled the input line off the back of the TBI and fuel is pumping to it well.

    Is this the ECM? If it is how much are they?

    Thanks,
    John

    So your getting fuel to the TBI but at what psi? I don't know if that would matter or not.

    okay, we got it to fire finally. I took a paper clip and put it in the diagnostic lead under the dash between the two prongs that were side by side. Turned the key on for about 30 seconds. The computer did all sorts of wild things. All of a sudden there was fuel and wham-o, it fired up......... WTF!!!

    It is running good and strong now.

    Thanks for all of the suggestions. We will take it for a trest ride tomorrow to see if it stays running or not.
