  1. DRILLED out the lug nuts, now just to swap the differential out with my spare car, and replace all the tires.
  2. Which one goes to the fuel filter and which comes from the fuel pump?
  3. Plugs getting spark still yeah, not sure if they are fouled, I cleaned them off well, and they are dark brown/grey
  4. Fuel now coming out the injectors! - took the fuel tank out, and put it next to the fuel pump under the car. Removed the intank pump, and ran a fuel line from the external pump straight into the tank, and boom fuel sprays at high pressure and fairly equally into my test water bottles. After putting the injectors in, it will no longer start... plugs are getting spark... huh... fuel is now spraying, but now it wont even start...? help me
  5. Finally I have found this issue..... When I take out the 4 fuel injectors, and prime the fuel system 20 times, and then I hit the starter for a long time, there is NO fuel coming out of the injectors... With the 4 injectors out, the car still starts how it normally would, which was kind of funny. So i need a new distributor... those are hundreds of dollars...
  6. Great Progress! Finally got the fuel injector cleaned/fixed, and the engine is running on all 4 cylinders now, and pretty smoothly too. Every now n then it has a misfire. I let the car warm up for 30 minutes, and no leaks were spotted. A few problems: Cooling system isnt pressurizing (Due to radiator cap I think), and the small switch next to throttle has a wire ripped off, which Jon says is probably causing the crackling and popping in the exhaust (sounds awesome though in my opinion). Turbo does appear to be working still! Havn't tested alot of the electrics, except headlights which dont
  7. Im thinking the fuel distributor must be the cause... is there some way I can test for a faulty fuel distributor without a pressure test kit?, I think I have finally gathered proper symptoms of the car: When Cold - Easy to start - Hard/Impossible to stay running When Warm/Hot - Super super hard to start - Can usually stay running sometimes even idle, but either way it runs rough. Whether the car is hot or cold, for the 1 or 2 seconds after it starts it seems to run good, but when the cold start injector turns off, all goes badly. Also I can easily keep the car
  8. The original fuel pump for this car starting working again (weird), so I stuck it back on the car thinking maybe the new fuel pump I got was too low pressure. I also got a new fuel accumulator and installed it. Car wont even start now, even after priming the fuel pump over 65 times! Yes there is gas in the tank, im thinking since the intank fuel pump is broken, it is causing the external pump to not be able to get any fuel or that I put the accumulator on backwards... anyone know which nozzle on the accumulator goes to the filter vs fuel pump?
  9. This car has to be the most reliable vehicle ever... I put some carb cleaner in the fuel rail today, and then started the car. Surprisingly it started, and idled just fine, no smoke, it didnt drink coolant, and oil looks good. Besides the battery, and an oil change NOTHING has been replaced!! How about that after 15 years of sitting it still works just fine..... All I need is to get the wheels off lol and replace the differential, and then its ready for the road.
  10. Haha you'd be surprised how rust free the rest of the car is, literally its just the lug nuts. A bit of surface rust under the car, and a few nuts & bolts rusty, but nothing serious. The strength of my drill bits are not as strong as those lug nuts haha, the drill just breaks and sizes down after a few minutes. Took 3 drill bits to make that tiny hole you see in the 3rd picture. Im 3 hours away from beach, its almost as if its rusted into a flower shape. The few nuts I had gotten off, I had to use 14mm for some and as high as 20 mm for others... thats rediculous lol. (19mm is ori
  11. I thought this was neat: Reason this car was parked was due to a leaked differential (got lifted up by it during an inspection), and so I have a spare to replace it with, but I cant take off the wheel because the uh the lug nuts are the most rusty thing I thought i'd share some photos: ( All 48 lug nuts on my 3 505 Turbo's are like this haha)
  12. Thanks guys, It looks like this is my 3rd vehicle that has faulty fuel injectors... haha guess a car sitting for so long does that. I think the car started from the cold start injector, cause it would die after just 2 seconds. To get the injectors out it looks like the intake manifold has to come out? - Please tell me I am wrong haha
  13. Anyone know what the fuel pressure PSI/Bar should be?
  14. This is the car that supposedly was in some videos on this site? Street Races, Donuts, and whatnot? Not sure about that was only 2 years old, but its what i'v heard. The interior on the car is superb even though there is a small water leak... any common places for rain water leaking into 505's? - 89 505 Turbo Automatic A year ago I went out to see if this car had compression, and 2 of the cylinders did not. Today I checked again, and all of a sudden all 4 cylinders are compressing, so its possible this car can get on the road soon. So, today I hooked up my test battery, did an oil ch
  15. Today my new fuel filter & in-tank fuel pump came in the mail, so I installed them both on the Mi16. Started the car, and after the lines pressurized the car fired right up. Had smoke for a few seconds, but cleared up in no time. Idles at 1200-1300 RPM when its cold (I didn't want to run it any longer without a new timing belt). Didn't rev it any, again due to it past the mileage for a new timing belt. Every now and then there is a misfire, pop, but that might go away after letting it run for a while. (It's ran for about 30 seconds in the past 16 years). All this c
