i figured it out and it saved me a huge bill at a garage. it turned out to be the lift pump to fuel pump pipe had come off because the throttle linkage is only held on with one bolt and had came loose and knocked it. i did the old fiddle with the pipes, blead the fuel system and hope methode and it fired up and purred like a kitten. i am brilent. lol does anyone know the part no for the pipe because i'm still not happy with it and would like to replace it?
