TC is running again!

I finally started TC today! First, the TBI module went on. Then, I took a quick trip to the gas station to fill my 'new' vintage U.S. military jerry can, transfered 5 gallons into TC's tank, then discovered problems with the fuel pump.

A little persuasion (with a hammer) got it delivering fuel again. The pump was clogged, most likely, with the same fine rust in the old tank.

The truck fired up and ran surprisingly well on a stock bin. I could never get to run right before so perhaps the new injectors saved the day. I'm sure soaking the TBI in cleaner and replacing all the gaskets didn't hurt, either.

Now, back to tuning after such a long hiatus, then time for emissions and tags.
