85 EA82 carbed - Hard to start
Posted 03 January 2013 - 06:34 PM
My other '85 ea82 carbed (mine)... I never hear any clicking or the fuel pump running. Owned it for 20 years.
Thanks everyone for the help. Happy New Year to All ! Ron W.

Sounds like a bad connection, or a drained/bad battery.
Have you checked the battery-to-stater terminals?
Whats your voltage at?

Seems as though it is not getting fuel. So my question... is the relay supposed to click? Or does that mean it is going out?
Once the car does start (after 7 or 8 attempts)... it runs fine.
Is the fuel pump relay for a carbed '85 ea82 the square blue one or is it one of the torpedos in the bank of 4?
Thanks in advance...

Try peressing the pedal to the floor once beofre starting.
the fuel pump relay is mounted above the steering column. On the carb model, it kicks on for a second at key on, and then will continue to run once it seed a signal from the rotating distributor. There is also a fuel pump control unit.
you may notice a buzzing sound under the kood with the key on. this is normal
I had someone try in vain to start one of my soobs back in the day. At least 5 0r 6 times. I mentioned the choke thing and it fired right up for me when i demonstrated.
It's a lot like people who try to pump the gas on a fuel injected car.
