Re: EA wants to start, but...
well, its fixed.
the fuel idea was spot on.
my gauge was lying to me... apparantly it was stuck, and registering a quarter when in fact there was none. Bone dry.
Had i removed the fuel rail feeder and cranked, it would have been obvious. I did undo it, but when i heard a hiss and smelt fuel, i considered everything was fine. Not far enough tho.
had i poured a jerry of fuel and cranked until fuel made it to the rail, then broooom she would have fired up apparently.... Hehe SO close.
i became bogged down in spark related matters... argh.
no matter, thanks to all for the tips.
