      new plugs, cranked the engine without plugs in ti and the fuel pump disconnected, put a few squirts of oil in the cylinders and put the new plugs in. still nothing.

      im going to see if luke ever has a spare minute to swing by and let me try his AFM as well as a few other things.

      nope, car ran perfect, parked it for a week waiting for parts. parts showed, drove the car to the store and back (10 minutes or so) parked it. swapped pan gaskets and oil pump drive shaft stops and put it back together. ran like shit, sat a few more days and now it doesn't start at all.

      dunno, maybe moving the ground around that connects the pan to the frame fucked it up, it is original and kinda shitty looking. so i tried hooking the black lead of a jumper cable from the ground post on the passenger strut tower to the exhaust manifold. still nothing.

              How much oil do I use and how much? I likely need to do this...

                Yes I am including myself in the vulture crowd ;)
                It would be a shame to part that car out, but I have been in your position before. Hopefully you can keep pressing on with it

                  Random question: If an engine is to be stored on a pallet for as long as a few months, is better to leave the oil in it or drain it? Same question for transmissions and differentials
