      You never should see any fuel in the throttle body, expecting any is an invalid test procedure.

      To KNOW if there's adequate fuel to the rail you need a fuel pressure gauge, not expensive.

      You've been offered all the help you need, more than you can use, nothing snarky about that.

      Back again?

      Did you get a dwell or duty cycle meter yet?
      Have you followed the instructions in the links provided in replies to your previous threads?

      There should be a timing belt tutorial linked in the FAQ and/or at cabby-info.com.
      You'll also be removing the gears from the cam, crank and intermediate shafts to get to the seals behind them.
