      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

well this is kind of a odd one. my dad did intake gaskets on it and thats last time it would start.i checked the timing that seems to be ok,got fuel and presure at the rail [didnt check with gauge] i also checked over harness connections no bent pins or broken wires. i have power at the injector harness

with test light.we dumped fuel down the throttle plate starts and run smooth other than that the truck dont even begain to fire. any suggestions

thank you

You need to get a fuel pressure gauge. That engine has central port injection which requires a minimum of 55 psi to start. Anything less, 54psi or lower, and it will not start.

I have also had the poppets on the end of the injectors freeze up after leaving the intake upside down during the repair. Typically only one or two will do this and typically the engine will still start/run.

The last thought is to make sure you check the fuses just to make sure you didn't inadvertently pop one.

It should hold that pressure in theory for days at a time. If its bleeding off right away than there is another issue that may or may not be causing the no start.

Is the snorkel on so that the MAF is reading airflow? are you sure you have all the vacuum lines/hoses hooked back up? Are you sure you have the upper intake sealed so there are no vacuum leaks. It may be worth pulling the fuel lines back out of the CPI unit to see if one of the plastic collars didn't turn sideways on you and essentially plug the fuel rail? Just some thoughts. Keep us updated!!

thank you for your posts airjer

Running pressure and holding pressure will be two different numbers. 62 to 58 drop would be perfectly normal as long as it holds at 58. If it went from 62 to 0 in a minute or so then there is a problem.

I guess the next thing you could do is pull the upper plenum, Remove the poppets from the lower intake, Unplug the coil, plug in the CPI, hook up the fuel rail, and crank it over to see if the poppets are spraying fuel.

I do for some reason remember getting a call from a guy who worked at our hastings location a few years ago. he had the same problem after doing an intake (crank no start) and if I remember correctly he ended up replacing all eight poppet's/injectors. Obviously that is not going to be cheap so I would recommend getting a professional opinion (check data with scan tool and confirm signal to injectors) first.

i had my dad crank the engine over to see if fuel was spraying out last night no fuel butt i dont know if he plugged it in.

its going on 5yrs since i worked on that engine and living a hour away with 4 kids also working nights has a diesle tech.im trying to walk him through the steps my hand held or the shops wont check gas engine data signal. iwill call him in the am

ask him if he remembers pluging cpi back in. how would i now what direction the plastic collars need to face in cpi idont see it the chevy c/k manual

The plastic collars in the CPI where the fuel lines go in are there to space the o-rings that seal the fuel lines. It doesn't matter which way they go in.

    • If they are up there odds are they won't move much if any when you poke your head up there and shine a light around to look for them.  They can really tuck into small areas so it may not be super easy to find them.  If you end up needing to crawl around up there to look for them here are the items I'd suggest.   In case there is bat $#!?.   In case air quality is bad aka its full of bat $#!?.   In case the bat $#!? hits the fan.
    • I'm calling May 13 in the Brainerd area. That's Mother's Day, and they'll need us out of their hair that day so they can have some fun.
    • Predict lakes around Duluth will be open two days before the fishing opener. Places like Lake of the Woods a week afterwards. Now I’ll get to see how accurate I was
    • I am pretty sure I found how they get in and out...where my soffits meet my roof lines the soffits have a gap of a couple inches and runs the length of the soffit, so about 18" in one spot and the other spot is wider but has the Gap of 2" or more for them to enter.  Since I just had one find and opening in my walls and found a way to make it to my basement I am pretty sure they are in my attic right now and have been there all winter but I will get up there and take a look around.  All you interest and responses on this is appreciated!!!
    • While on vacation in Marco Island, FL we went back down to the Beach to do some more Surf Fishing. At the end of our last trip we found a group of rocks that seemed to be holding a lot of different species including Sheepshead and Pompano. We decided to start our day near these rocks this time and they didn't disappoint. We were using 1/4oz and 1/2oz egg sinkers with circle hooks and shrimp to catch all of our fish.    
    • My encapsulation and photos are in the submission thread. Good luck to everyone else!
