P1800 ES 1800 1973

thanks so much Chris,

this is very helpful, more so than the haynes manual i have. With regards to testing inj, i did not Ohm them, but i did put 3 Volts across them as i took them out of the box, so i m assuming (i shouldnt as i have gotten DOA parts before) as they are new they are good. Upon going thru the testing sequence, i notice overnight the fuel pressure falls all the way to zero from 29 lbs, should this not stay in the 20 -25 lb range?

This is what started this whole issue, some or all of the old injectors were stuck open dumping so much gas in the engine, the oil level got above high mark of stick and oil smelt of gas.

I have just put on new cap & button, i m changing out coil as i think my new one is now tired after trying to start this thing for 8 months now.

i think the time and money i have in this i could have converted to carb 3 times over (rebuilding old injectors, buying new ones etc etc.)......Sigh....i had this car since 2012 and it has always been very finicky with the FI system, infact i have only driven it 3 times one of which it broke down. Do you guys really use FI cars as daily drivers? I wouldnt go 2 miles in this thing, so unreliable.

Wish me luck, i ll advise of progress....

thanks Rob
