Hay, what the hell. It's runnin and drivin, right?
It was. Fuel pressure dropped from 6psi to 4.5, then the following weekend down to 3psi. Made zero changes so I assume the filter is just plugged up. I didnt even put a timing light on it or graph a timing curve. Ripped it a little on the street, put it on the trailer and took it to the show.
Well, it sat for a few weeks. Helped the inlaws move, doing stuff around the house and all the general life stuff. Figured id light the car off. Something told me to kick the pump on and check for leaks first. Sure heard fuel gushing. Needle and seat hung up, out the vent tubes and straight down the charge pipe into the turbo. Got the fuel out if the turbo, new .130 needles and seats at all 4 corners, gonna pop the plugs out and bar it over then change the oil in it.
With how much has gotten in the way this thing better fly *** or run the crank over.

don’t forget to remove the cover for the inlet on the turbo. I don’t run a filter on my turbo and use the cover when I park my car and have forgotten it more then I can count.
May explain why your fuel pressure was dropping if your running mechanical pump ?
Kinda hard to tell from the pic but did it waller out the hole for the dowel pin in the cam?
Please don’t run this camshaft again without a more permanent fix.Considered it, considered doing the right thing and putting my other cam in it. Just frustrated with it so I’ll take some time away and decide.
