Default no start =(

so one of the O-rings got pinched changed it no more leaking oil.... preped the fuel lines again turn it and it wont start... my oil pressure gauge goes up but the car wont start and it turns over but alas no start. Any ideas would be pwn.

Set-Up

Other than the stock kit this is what i got

Bipes, Tony Pipe, Sab 900 IC, KN 5111, 1.8L Injectors

i replaced my CAS ring and also did the lock tite fix on my short nose crank... so i know my timing is way fucked but i have a timing light just need the damn thing to start so i can time it.

Probably the CAS Connection Leads - Could be switched/Reversed also.

When you changed your o-rings did you depressurize the system by pulling the yellow plug under the dash? If so, did you plug it back in?

I only ask b/c I forgot to plug it back in once and felt like a tart after figuring out why my car would not start so I figure that someone else could do it too.

You'll have to jump the CAS in and CAS out connections on the wiring harness connector with a paper clip or piece of wire.

nah wired them so that the IN is one type of connector and the OUT is another so they will just plug back together.
