well I'm getting about 38 to 42 pounds of pressure off the fuel pump. so it has to be the timing right. someone told me that its pre-adjusted. will it make it harder to adjust per-say?

The timing is not adjustable. Does the car have SPARK?>? Does it have injector pulse?? Does it have compression and it does have fuel pressure as you posted. One is missing or the TB jumped or broke?? A compression test will tell. Peace Tom:bigthumbsup:bigthumbsup:bigthumbsup

One of the issues with the dual plug or for that matter any crank trigger ignition like the 2.3 is when the belt breaks you still have spark. Listening to the engine crank should have led you to the belt immediately. It sounds completely different and it is like night and day. Either way you found it and that is great. Now the fun begins. The crank sensor has to be messed with and make sure you check the gap first to set it back to the same speck. Just a heads up/and make sure of your timing marks on the cam and crank. Good luck Peace Tom

Glad you got it running. Keep an eye on that belt. Unless there was something wrong with the tensioner, I'd be concerned about the condition of the belt.

I've always been of the philosophy that if you've gone to all the trouble to get to the belt, you might as well put a new one in there. Especially if you don't know when the current belt was put on. Cheap insurance that will prevent another 7 month downtime.

Tom, I only beat you because you hadn't seen it yet. I'll probably be on here a lot more in the coming weeks. I'm supposed to have shoulder surgery next Friday so I'll be out of commission for the rest of the year while I heal up.
