86 SC no spark no fuel. I'm at a standstill.
I'm throwing myself at the mercy of the forum. I've googled, i've printed pages, run through diagnostics, I've learned a lot and made progress, however I've hit a wall.
Back story this Shelby was found in a field and it hasn't been on the road in 25 years. Original owner died, and I assume this issue was present back then as well. I've repaired wires, cleaned connections, the engine turns over, I get codes at the cluster, mostly 33 and 55. This car has no AC. so I assume the LM is working, I hear some clicking noises from the PM when I turn the key on and I do hear a short whirring noise under the hood when I turn the key on. but that is as far as I've been able to get.
The HEP is new, the cap is new, rotor is new, wires and plugs all new. If I connect a test light to the + of the coil and ground, I get a one second flash when key on, and a steady light when cranking. On the other hand when I put that same test light on the - of the coil and ground I get nothing. according to an article I read, I changed the coil with a new Standard blue streak coil but nothing new.
I tried the ASD relay jumper from the under hood diagnostics connector to the ground on the battery but nothing happened except flashing a 42 & 43 code. and this is the part where I'm at a standstill. so If anyone can enlighten as to where I should go next I would greatly appreciate it.
