Just swapped a good motor into my RX. Turns but does not crank. I brought the other coil and ignitor over with it because I know it worked.

I am thinking that I may have the fuel lines not quite right - took under hood pics prior to the swap, just missed the area I need right now.

The fuel line that goes to the filter is zip tied to another line. There are 2 fuel line connectors right by the distributor. Which one does the line that comes from the bootom of the fuel filter go to? The one more toward the front of the car, or the one more toward the back?

John, Take a look at the fuel rail, you will see one of them goes right into the fuel rail, this connects to the line from the filter. The one next to it comes from the other fuel rail and is the return line. I can look at my ER27 after work tommrow and tell you for sure, I bet they are similar. The ER27 has three and the third is for the cannister.

I left my Subaru Parka over at your place on the chair while we were doing that swap right? If so I will hook up with you later this week.

the line with the padding on it goes in back.
the fuel filter line goes in the middle.
the other line goes in front.
i had to check on this a couple times when engine swapping too :P

Thanks. Looks like that is correct, but I am not getting spark. Going to have to check all the connections.

Scott - yes, your Subaru parka is here. Let me know when you want to get it.
