Re: O/T. Ford fuel pump
Is that a CenteralPointInjection system, with two injectors, similar to the GM TBI? The fuel pump runs all the time, at a fairly low (about 12psi) pressure.
So, do you always have good spark?
Does it start right up with starting fluid?
If it does, I'd monitor the fuel pump pressure, and look to see if the injectors are opening, and spraying fuel into the Throttle Body throat. I slip a little piece of cardboard into the TB and watch to see the spray pattern on the cardboard. If there's no spray on start, the fuel injectors are clogged/clogging, or the TBI regulator is shot, or there's no pressure at the TB during crank till the fuel pump pressurizes the fuel line.
