    I should have some on this computer I will look. in the meantime, I tried to send this message out, but it asks for a recipient? I thought maybe if I threw it out there, it was general to everyone. I guess not, but maybe you can help me figure out how to post it to the forum? here is what I wrote: I have a 1987 Mustang GT that will not start. it has always been in the garage, and I tried to start it, and it will spin over nicely, just not start. I know it needs 3 things to start, as with any internal combustion engine. Fuel, Air and ignition. So I started at the very back of the car, and you should be able to hear the fuel pump run. There is no sound. So, I think it might be a fuse. Nothing there that relates to the fuel pump. I take each fuse out and replace with a new ones. Still nothing. I am trying to figure out if the connection on top of the fuel pump could be a problem. I am not sure how to get it off. Do you turn it clockwise, as i tried to pull it off and that's a no go. I figure if I can get it off, I can test for volts going to the top of the fuel pump. I really don't want to drop the tank, so I look to the drivers side in the back and there is a switch for from what I am told, is a switch , so if rear ended, it cuts power to the fuel pump. It seems to have 2 positions on it, like on, or off, so I try that. still no noise from the fuel pump. Since I hear no noise from the pump. I assume there is no fuel in the fuel rail. I have not depressed the shraeder valve to find out. Is there something else I might have over looked? Thank you.

    Ok good job first.
    Secondly let me say grab some starter fluid if she spins and runs on that. Then yes its a fuel issue. The Schrader valve should be a true way to determine fuel at the rail. If none found then yes the pump itself failed. The fuel system is pretty simple. If u checked fuses and honestly if u can there is no fuel in the rails then bad pump.

    Thanks much. The valve will be next. I have heard that you can spray starting fluid up where the air cleaner is. I guess its worth a shot, or the other way we use to do it is pull the plugs and spray some in each cylinder. That would take a little longer tho.

    I have never sprayed every single cylinder.
    Just make sure u don't spray it where the maf is never do that. It will ruin it
