How's the ground from the battery to the front core support? Mine made smoke and wouldn't turn over. I had the engine ground loose. Since you were in the area, try that. You probably fried the front core support ground.

Where did you get "2 wires" from? The wire in Dazed and my pictures the only one you need to worry about. That wire only runs to one other wire, the one in my second pic. It doesn't split the power up until after the key switch.

Grounds are also a good idea, but since you had the FSS shorted you're probably dealing with a hot side problem.

The one I wired in feeds 2 wires. It was one wire going into fuseable link and 2 coming out.

Not bad for a whiny whAt? yank, eh? ;)

Make sure you check all your fuse panel fuses one last time as well, you may have possibly popped one while back-feeding through the FSS wire.

The orange wire was really fragile and one part was blowed apart and you couldnt see it. Altho this situation did make me finally get new terminals, new wire connectors, clean my grounds and wires up! New situation now. Now my pump is leaking at the kill switch and i cant get it tuned right. Im taking it to a diesel perf shop in the morning. He said he will get it right!look at some ofthe pics on my photo bucket.

Glad to hear it's going again.

I'm not much use when it comes to pump repair, unfortunately. :oops:

Tsb, you can copy and paste the pics from Photobucket to here. Just hover the cursor over the pic on the 'bucket, and click on the bottom option that pops up. Then come here and "paste" and the image will show. Make sure you hit "enter" before you paste, it will set the pic below the words, makies for easier viewing. ;)
