Here it is: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=H-NK5vxrh0A

Somehow when I was replacing the clutch I either whacked the distributor or hit it by accident. Also had some issues with the wiring harness. Went to a junkyard got a DE dizzy and cut the bottom ear off and all was good.

Yeah mine will eventually start though. Once whatever problem (no enough air, not enough fuel...etc etc) is resolution during repeat attempts to start, it will eventually start up

Ok so let's think. It's 1 of three things, fuel, air, or spark. Assuming it's not an issue with the starter

I think i've already changed the starter on this car anyway but no it cranks it everytime and like i said, i can keep it cranking, then when i hit the gas pedal it'll start showing signs of trying to start. Personally i'm still leaning towards it being an air issue. If spark is there cuz warm start is no issue and fuel pressure is always at 3 bar regardless the on/off/running...etc state of the car after pump prime and the FPR is working fine, i'd have to think it was air. I'm gonna swap out both the IACV and the AAC and see what happens when i can get my hands on some spares. First i'm gonna do the IACV with the metal strip that under the intake manifold, then the AAC thats other there on the pass side of the intake manifold

You gotta think about it too when your hitting the gas pedal and holding it open and it wants to start and does start your essentially leaning out the system, I still say it's something with fuel
