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!!

had 62 psi tappered down to 58 psi dont remeber if it held at that or not i will double check that. dad pulled the upper intake off and cleaned inj tippes he said it spitts and sputters now.i looked at the vacuum lines sat am didnt see anything disconnected.you wouldnt think that all poppets froze

thank you for your posts airjer

i will keep you updated

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.

    • Sounds like you guys gave her heck up there to find them. I'd be praying thanks, too if I got that one on! ☺️
    • Quick recap:   Weather was too darn “nice”!  Upper 80’s - 90’s; no wind to speak of; mostly sunny. Water temps were anywhere from 64 - 71 depending on location and day.   We looked the lake over from end to end, marking up our map and returning to some places where we saw fish either later the same day or a couple days later.  We could literally see the transition from spawn to post spawn happening during our stay.  Being new to both muskie fishing and that lake, we spent time in dead water as much as good water but feel like we got a pretty good handle on how to go about setting up a more efficient return visit.  It was a lot work and long hours but I’d go back this weekend if I could so I must’ve enjoyed it.   A few pics as hoped for:
    • big dave 2 and leech, darn good lookin meals!!!!  Dave have a good weekend!!!!
    • Ok Dave have a good weekend. Hope you get over the whole butt hurt Leech deal! Not sure where you got that I don't like folks smoking or grilling things?  I know I do enough. Have fun! 🙂  
    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
    • Rick didn't like all the "My Grills bigger and better then yours" posts!  😅
    • We switched to a new server. Had a glitch in our dB that lost a couple days of posts.
    • I ripped a hole in one of my favorite pairs of fishing shorts just need a decent sized patch to cover her up
    • I am not sure what happened either but we lost all of the posts last couple days not just this thread. And it looks like the same thing happened over on FM site as well. I know the site was down last night while I tried look at it.
