Sean if you idled it back on a mechanically governed engine you have shut the fuel off to the injectors... turn it back up slowly and possibly crack the bleeders on the injectors to make sure you haven't sucked any air,good luck!

Fuel to injection pump. Relocated PMD new injection pump, no fuel out of pump to injector lines, no start?? what is the problem?

Sorry am not sure what PMD is?

You didn't say whether the injection pump is purely mechanical or whether there is electronic control or merely an electric fuel cut-off solenoid?
You also didn't tell us whether it is an in-line pump or a distributor type and if the latter is it hydraulically governed or mechanically governed?
Hydraulically governed DPA pumps are very difficult to bleed though during the bleeding process there is usually spits and spots of fuel through the injector lines.

It is unlikely a new or reconditioned pump would be so faulty as to not pump at all so the fault is likely to be with the fuel cut off solenoid. I suggest you check the supply and then check the solenoid operation.

When driving the truck 1987 ford f-150 it shuts down, no sputter or anything. if I put in neutral it will not re-start, only re-starts when you turn the key off then back on, and it runs fine until it

Not sure if this will help but i had a similar problem on an 85 Lincoln Town car right from the first week i bought it, hitting the dealership for warranty almost weekly because of this problem it took them 2 years to figure out it was a problem caused by built up carbon particles that were getting lodged in the EGR valve which was cone shaped, there by not allowing the valve to close properly and giving a false sensor reading to the engine and causing it to shut down, Once the ignition was turned off it would start again and run normally for anywhere between a few hours to a few days then do it again. To solve the problem they custom built a small screen to go in front of where the intake line to the EGR is and that seemed to solve the problem. I was told it had happened to other Ford and Lincoln vehicles as well with the V8 throttle body injection fuel system.

Need to know where the location of fuel pump is on 85 t -bird

If fuel injected- Central Fuel Injection, as I think it was, the electric pump should be in the gas tank. If still carbureted, it will have a mechanical fuel pump on the engine.

What does the vacuum pump on an 91' f350 (7.3l diesel) run?

Good question. On petrol engines there is a throttle plate that governs the amount of air entering the engine. At idle the throttle is almost completely closed and a result is the a vacuum is created in the inlet plenum. This vacuum is used to control ancillary engine related functions: opening the engine's exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) valve; operating the intake manifold runner (IMR) valve; moderating the fuel pressure regulator (FPR) function; and in governing in-gear duration (automatic transmission) and vehicle functions such as central locking, fuel cap door release and brake servo assist. OK so what has this to do with diesels? Diesels do not have throttles, engine speed is governed by fuel injection volumes. Without an air throttle the diesel engine does not have a vacuum to run the ancillary vehicular functions. Since many of the ancillary devices have already been made to operate with petrol engines it is simpler add vacuum pump to the diesel engine and use the same components to do the same jobs.

Just picked up and 85 Crown Vic with 69k miles on it. Starts right up, but idle is very high. It sat for over a year in a garage without running, but fired right up when jumped. Where can I fine tune-up...

This should be fuel injected. But it is throttle body and it is an early one. It has a choke coil mounted to the passenger side of the throttle body. It doesn't run a choke it just controls fast idle. It might be bad or unhooked. Check for power on this.

What engine code is stored in the computer? You may have a bad TPS (throttle postioning sensor), or a bad O2 sensor. Auto Zone can retrieve the code for you, and tell you what sensor it is related to.
