This is the car from the recent BaT thread. I had Craig do a once over on it before picking it up and it ran awesome. He had fixed the oil leak (not a rear seal, some sort of oil vapor collector in the V?), A/C and a number of other minor things so the car was good. Made it from Portland to Mt. Shasta with no problem. Started the next morning (38F) with some stumbling but cleared out shortly and ran great to Vacaville where we got gas. A little more cranking to start it but it did fire up. Drove to Richmond with no problem but after sitting for 30 minutes, no start. Zip, zero. Simply cranked and cranked with no fire at all, even a miss fire. So we started checking for fuel and spark in the obvious places. 1) Fuel appears at the main feed from the tank lines under the big banjo bolt 2) Fuel burps out of the banjo bolts on the lines to the fuel injectors 3) Initially at one point the fuel pumps were not working but this was resolved when we pulled the fuses in and out and also disconnected the roll over plug on the driver side fuel distributor. 4) There is spark at the spark plugs. We pulled out several and grounded them while cranking. Got a spark although it appeared to be sort of week. 5) Plugs appear to be dry, i.e., no flooding 6) Cranking voltage is 11.1 VDC When the car is warm, absolutely no indication of ignition, simply cranking with no firing (like cranking an engine without the plugs installed). Same situation but this time we shot a blast of starting fluid into the inlet horn with the throttle at full open. A brief stumble but then it fired right up and idled perfectly! We let it warm up and charge the battery (13.9 VDC) for a few minutes, shut it off, and tried again without the starting fluid and it just cranked and cranked with no starting again. Gave it a blast of starting fluid and it fired right up and idled fine, runs great. So what's up? Do I just have a weak spark? Would the difference from 11.1 VDC to 13.9 VDC make enough of a difference that the mixture wouldn't ignite until we splashed it with starting fluid? Do the Dino-thingies get tired? Any suggestions?
