No that's not right. Should be a line on there.

I can't think of where that line goes off hand. One of them around there goes back to the fuel filter area. I think onto the FPR. Not sure that it's...

Any stored codes?

I'd start by checking the two ground's. Those can do weird things if they aren't grounded well. One in battery box the other just below it.

I'd start with the basic stuff. Air , fuel, spark, compression.

Why was someone jumping to starter? When you said "cranking but no spark", was that with the...

Welcome. It wasn't a bad decision.

I grew up in Chicago area. Couldn't stand rusted out cars so moved out West. (not to mention the weather)

Good luck!

Oil Pan Cleaning

I'm building an M52 for my TI. Dropped the pan in order to get an Achilles baffle welded in. Now I'm wondering how to clean the pan for welding.

I've always wondered if someone has found a good replacement for that channel liner. Mine is sagging as well.

I assume the answer is to remove it and insulate from the inside. But am all ears if...

Throttle cable is needed.

Like Voltron says, don't need fuel pump. I think on a 97 the fuel reg is by the fuel filter instead of rail, but a good point to check.

I'd consider a new larger...

Why does that intake look strange? I get that it's painted, but is that a normal '99 intake?
