i've recently acquired an 87 RX turbo and it wasnt in running condition. had to get replacement MAF sensor and fuel pump and filter


as soon as i tried to get it started i could tell it was trying to fire then all i could smell was varnished gas.. so its been sitting for a while


if i pour good gas into throttle body it will fire up for a second, but now that i have good gas in the tank and lines with new filter it doesnt seem to get any gas to the injectors. somewhere between filter and injectors??

Does it get significant gas past the filter?

Injectors are likely gummed up with varnish, a good ultrasonic clean needed there I do believe.

ultrasonic cleaning?
