Thread: No cranking fuel pressure & no RPM signal

    Default No cranking fuel pressure & no RPM signal

    Hey guys. Just finished installing the Avenger EFI system. The install went smoothly, but I'm checking to see if we've got everything installed properly as we're showing low/0 fuel PSI and no RPM signal.

    We've got the yellow loose wire connected to the - terminal on an MSD Blaster II coil with a traditional MSD vacuum advance ready-to-run distributor. No MSD box. Showing Stl on the ignition dispaly.

    Also, we're only showing 10 or so PSI during fuel pump prime, which goes to 0 after the prime and does not increase when cranking. Obviously, we're a no-start so far. Thoughts? Thanks!

    "STL" indicates stall, meaning no RPM input is detected.

    That MSD Ready-To-Run distributor has four wires:
    Green or Gray - tachometer connection.
    Red - to coil positive terminal. (Keyed 12 volts should also be connected here.)
    Orange - to coil negative terminal. (Avenger loose yellow wire should also be connected here; no timing control & no MSD box!)
    Black - to engine ground.

    During the initial engine calibration (using the hand-held controller), did you select no ECU controlled timing?
    FYI: Your engine will run much better using the late model, small-cap GM HEI computer controlled distributor,
    due to the optimum timing curve already programmed in the ECU. Computer controlled timing is a significant aspect of EFI.
    May God's grace bless you in the Lord Jesus Christ.

    Thanks Danny. Thanks to Holley's Tech Support team, I think we're tracking this one down. We may just have a low voltage situation. The car had been sitting a while and we think we're not making enough juice at idle to make spark, hence no RPM signal. We'll be back at it in a few, and we'll post the results here. Thanks!
