      now sure if you will be able to view this ..

      were having a lil bit of a fueling problem .. were running just off the stock fuel pump at the moment just to fire it up .. and it won't turn over unless we hookup a battery pack to the fuel pump and "jump" it so to speak ..

      so if we run it without the battery jumper hooked up and no fuel was previously in the lines .. it won't turn over

      could it be that the car has been sitting for 7 months and the fuel pump just needs to run for a while before it will come back to "life"?

      also .. we have a mystery line coming into the engine bay ... we believe its for the flapper valve .. can anyone confirm that the flapper line comes in from the top left of the engine bay?

      Car should still turn over without any fuel pump period..is it turning not firing? If so your relay could be bad

      I just re-read your post...
      I thought you said "well it's on the road", not "well when it's on the road."
      Cool, looking fwd to seeing the finished product.
      Did you try looking for one in all the part outs in the classifieds?
