I was referring to the gaps on the plugs. I rechecked the valves before I bit it back together. I measured after I put the new shims in.

Ok. I'm going to take it apart again. What are the things I should triple check and test?  I know the clearances are good because I checked them all again before I put it back together. Everything else is suspect at this point.

There are two fuel lines. I think I connected them the same, but I didn't even know that could make a difference. The small hose with the big valve is on the inside. I'll double check the vacuum lines.

What about the main fuel lines. Do they need to go into specific outlets?

Actually it doesn't really matter which way round they are as one feeds the fuel and pressurises the fuel rail (5 in Mustang's diagram) and the other bleeds off excess pressure. I suppose in theory the bigger one should be the feed. There are no one-way valves in the pipes or rail.

FINALLY!!!!!!!!

 :hat10 :hat10 :hat10

Tweaks the gaps, fiddled a bit with wire management, and messed with the fuel lines a bit.   I didn't do anything that seemed like a big deal, but it started right up.
Oil change tomorrow, LED headlight bulbs should be here Monday. Should be golden.

Weather permitting, I'll go for a ride tomorrow.  :wheel

Of course it'll pack up again just when you get somewhere without a mobile signal........

My guess (and it's only a guess) is that one of the hoses wasn't seated correctly and hadn't opened the stopvalve.
