Have you looked down inside the engine were the dist. goes ? If you do you will see the oil pump drive shaft . You will notice a slot cut in it , now look at the bottom of the dist. shaft . You will see a key or it looks like a standered screw driver . Probably not linning up , need to take a long screw driver an turn the oil pump shaft till they do .

you have stumbled on the problem when you reduced the fuel flow / pressure when it fired with the fuel line off

90 chevy 4/4 pu tbi 350 floods out


I'm having the same trouble with the flooding after warm start...if it's the temp sensor, would the temp gauge be working? It's in a 1991 Chevy van with an injected 350 carb.

1979 chevy step van 350 new fuel pump rebuilt carburetor wont sta


remove the fuel line from the carb, put it into a bottle, crank the engine, If the bottle has fuel in it the fuel pump is working properly, if not, check the filter, and the fuel lines to the tank!!!

1991 chevy 350 urns over fast but wont start. then another time it will start


Sounds like a stubborn fuel pump. Try a squirt of starter fluid in the intake and see if it fires. If it fires change fuel filter first and try. If it doesn't work change pump.

OXYGEN SENSOR OR FUEL PUMP?


Change the fuel filter, check the fuel pressure, then pull the tank and replace the pump if the pressure is below spec.
