Thumbs up

Forgot to mention that we have spark, and fuel pressure but no fuel pulse, Where does that come from? The pulse that is.

If The Pin Wasnt Still There Would it run? Because it does this is an intermittant problem. When it dies its just all of a sudden then it wont start for a few hours then it will.

Does anyone think it could be the fuel relay?

There are 2 sensors by the firewall mounted on a bracket on top of the engine. One of them is the fuel injectors speed sensor. It will have to be replaced. Can't remember if it the white or black one.
