Many thanks again Chris!

I'll check the pump again with a bulb as you suggested and will also run another ground to the pump.

I've swapped most things over from the Royale-apart from the injectors-I have a spare set of injectors so will try these as well.

Whats bugging me was that it was ok when I bashed the pump and ok for a few weeks with a new pump and filter.

Will report back!

Many thanks again
 

Regards

Steve

If you still have the old filter might be worth splitting it open to check there's not a lot of junk coming throu and blocking the filter.hopefully not as it will have all come through the pump first !.
Did you say you had had the tank sealed on this car ? . I've had "renew system" sealed tanks whereby there's been orange stuff coming through the filter from the tank lining .settles down eventually but we will have to monitor things anyway if the e10 fuel comes in as they predict as it damages parts of older fuel systems .

From memory[which admittedly could be faulty]there is/was/should be a small filter on the end of the pick up pipe inside the tank.The fuel pump relay that has been mentioned is that the little one that clips over the bulkhead lip?

It's worth checking  if the small carbon contact in centre of distributor cap is intact.

Been there ... done that!  ;D

Also had the spring contact break off the rotor arm too ... not something that is immediately obvious  ???

Thanks all-will check these out-could be the gauze filter blocked in the tank.

Since the problem it's had a new rotor arm, distributor cap, petrol pump and filter, swapped over temp sensor from Royale along with the Maf (I think) sensor (air box), ECU.

When I get a bit of time I really need to look at the supply at the pump-both petrol and electrical. If it was lack of petrol I would have thought it would splutter when starting-but after spinning over for several seconds it starts and the revs go up to about 3000rpm for a second or so.

Once it starts does it rev cleanly and run perfect even when uphill ? . If so I wouldn’t suspect any fuel blockages or supply issues .a plumbed in pressure gauge would confirm this.( and any other pressure leakage issues,ie back to tank via pump one way valve or injectors forward.)
When mine had brand new injectors fitted it turned over for a good few seconds before firing.when it fired it did so cleanly with all cylinders coming in at once and ran smoothly.this issue settled down after a few starts.
your injectors are interchangeable between cars and a good chance to check sealing rings and maybee replace manifold fuel hoses at the same time.they do tend to harden up due to the immense heat they are subject to in that area.use correct rated good quality hoses here with the correct gm clips.

Thanks Chris,

Yep-once its started it runs cleanly-no missing or stuttering. It just revs initially up to about 3000rpm with a very light throttle. It's the same on the flat or on a hill. I have a second hand set of 6 injectors and new pipework-so will give that a go as well.

Thanks again
