Or, for regulated fuel pressure, ground the connector on the left side of the engine compartment, which test what is forward of it, is all working correctly.
P.S. Will have to look into one of those remote starters. Russ said I should, but was thinking I was going to make my own. Rather get something already made, as less cost, as San Diego no longer has electrical supply store. Not sure where to go now.

I took the pump off with the intention of putting the head on a spare motor i had. Well that did not work out as planned. While the spare spun freely when connected to power, i could not get it to actually move fuel (diesel) with the head on. So i put the head back on the old motor and got it to move fuel with no problem. I then reinstalled the pump on the car. Added gasoline to the tank and tried to start the engine. It was so close to starting, but alas would not actually start.

So i guess this means the fuel pump is actually moving the fuel to the engine bay.
