Did you set the #1 to TDC on the compression stroke? Is there 5v to the tps and the tps reading .77v-.99v?

Is the fuel pump running?

Make sure all the connectors are hooked up snuggly.

Do you get a check engine light?

The TPS sensor will have 3 wires going into it. 1 will be a ground, 1 will be a 5v reference voltage, and the final one is what the TPS is set as. Going from the ground to your setting loosen the 2 screws holding it on and slightly rotate the sensor until your meter reads about .96 V. It doesn't have to be perfect, as there is a large range that the computer considers acceptable. If you cannot get down low enough replace the sensor.

You don't have a msd ignition box or anything right? Your distributor isn't 360 off? Coil hooked up?

Just an example here Sinister. If the TPS is busted and putting out all 5v when it should only be putting out .9ish it is telling the computer you're at WOT when you should be sitting at idle. So the computer is going to dump fuel in to match the air that should be flowing into the engine. Not saying this is your problem but the TPS needs to be set properly either way.

5v from the tps would be WOT which would turn off the injectors since the car isnt running.

Yes i speak English very well actually....but let me break it down for you. Dizzy = distributor. Just because youve never heard the fdrm before (whic is hard to beleive), doesnt mean you need to act like i just typed something so unreadable. A simple search on google could reveal that dizzy was distributor

Sounds like you're a tooth off on the dizzy (distributor for some of you). Bring the rotor under the cap so it's pointing right at the #1 plug, don't worry about being on the compression stroke...you have a 50/50 chance. Once you get the rotor pointing to number 1 pull the dizzy out, set it back in. Attempt to start the car, if it just cranks and cranks then you're 180 out. Again point the rotor to number 1 (this will be repeated until you find the compression stroke) and pull the dizzy...set it back in. If it's not a tooth off it will fire right up and run. I get the idea you don't know your way around the dizzy very well, so this is the easiest way, for you, to do this. OR...pull the number 1 plug and put your thumb over the hole. Have the motor turned over until you feel air pushing on your thumb..this is your compression stroke. A buddy is needed for this if you don't have a starter button.
