A little update on the engine. I replaced the pickup coil before i went to the track and it fell flat on its face in the heat race. I started the feature and quickly started having issues. I was at the back so i had time to troubleshoot, i watched the fuel pressure gauge and when it cuts out the fuel pressure drops down to 3 psi or lower. It is now getting worse and completely dieing, but when you let the clutch out to roll the engine over while coasting the engine fires when the fuel pressure comes up. I had a 110 gph carter fuel pump that was about 6 yrs old and the fuel pressure was fluctuating with rpm it would go from 7 down to 6. So i replaced the fuel pump with a holley 110 gph and emptied the fuel cell to check and replace the fuel pickup. The car seems to run ok at the shop like usual is there anything else i need to look at, it will be 2 weeks before i can race again.
