  1. Lol. I was thinking that, could come in handy for sure.
  2. Oohhh sh*#*#* that's showing the terminals on the cold start valve itself. I must have been inhaling too many gas fumes! I was touching my jumper wires to the plug not the terminals on the cold start valve! The scary thing is, is I've done this correctly many times. Thank you
  3. I Have pulled the filter hose with a rag as my main method, I'm trying to go by the book this time. Lol My worry is if there's a short or a bad relay ( stuck open/closed) that's turning the engine that that could be a problem in the near future. I'm no good with wiring and relays and was hoping someone had a similar issue with a remedy.
  4. What I'm trying to do is just depressurize the fuel line by jumping the terminal plug of the cold start valve so I can do some work on the fuel lines. The engine shouldn't crank when jumping the cold start valve plug, it should just click and release pressure, not crank the engine. So I don't know if there's a short somewhere or a faulty relay that's causing the engine to crank.
  5. Hi all First off I'd like to say this is a great forum and it's helped me a lot! This problem though I couldn't find in the search.... So I have a 1978 z pretty much all stock and it's been sitting in the garage for almost 30 years. I've been working on it the past month. I'm switching out a cheap fuel pump I put in just to see if I could get it up and running. It did but fuel pressure is low. I really think the pump is gummed up, the gas was nasty in the tank and even after siphoning it out I think everything is just coated with gunk. So anyway, I'm jumping the cold start vale terminal to depressurize the line, which I have done over the past month without an issue, but this time the engine is turning over! I've had the fuel relays, ignition relay out to clean and check. Could one of them be bad or shorted causing this issue? Any ideas would be great.
