Well that is clearly not correct. The fuel pump is supposed to energize for a second or two in run position before you put into start position and then shut off. This could very well be your issue. I would correct cam pulley timing and jump ASD relay and see if car runs and stays running. I'm betting it will. Good luck!Thanks guys. I will adjust a tooth or two to be closer to the 12oclock position and update. Side note: I never thought of this as a symptom as I'm used to mechanical fuel pumps, but, when I initially turn to the run position the fuel pump does not kick on. It isn't until I'm cranking (or using the jumper to fake it out) that the fuel pump runs. could that be a symptom of some primal power signal I'm missing? I double checked this just now to verify, no fuel pump/pressure until i start to crank.
Looks like leakdown test, not compression test. That's better yet. I typically test mine at close to 100 PSI since cranking pressure will be around 120-145 PSI.
