MY LIFE NO LONGER SUCKS :)

It is ALIIIIIIVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm almost too embarrassed to say, but I had two no-brainer mistakes that stalled my entire project for almost two weeks.

#1. A pair of connectors with the same plug were backwards
...man, I must be color blind. There comes a time when you are so tired that you should just stop working. Stupid, Stupid, Stupid! What luck I didn't fry anything!

#2. I custom made "efficient" connectors. In this case, the one connector that houses all three cables that go to the tank had two misplaced wires. One pair did not line up with anything at all! Never work when your that tired.... Man.

But it fired right up! Oy, just some little piddly stuff (mounting the fuel filter, double check the mounts, and fuel lines for seal, etc), and I can roll for a test drive!!!

Whooo Hooooo! Today, I feel like a MAN!!!! Where's my woman? [img]images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

I don't want to sound like the oscars, so I will thank the community as a whole for the open sharing of pics, advice, and opinions. You all are the best!!!!

My pics will be comming soon [img]images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

Congrats man. I know the feeling of "right in front of your face" problems. My Zuke wouldn't start and it was because the switch on the Jacobs ignition was switched off. Took me a full day before I found it. [img]images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img] Jim
