It sounds to me like an Injector driver problem with the ECU.. But you have tried to swap ECU's so this should have corrected it.. I had a similar problem with a car I got at one time, it had some afm 42 lb injectors, but had a 30 lb ecu.. It burned up the driver in the ECU.. I used some 30# inj that I had and one of my sapre ecus and it ran just fine..
When you tried the Merkur ecu did you revert the harness back to the correct pin out for it?

didn't switch any wires when I tried the merkur ecu. I thought that they would be close enough just to see if my pump would turn on.

Just wanted to add, that I tried to pull the codes and I get nothing. I'm gonna have to read up tonight and see why I might not be getting any codes.

You should be pulling a code 11 saying all is kosher.

Correct me if I am wrong here. But to pull codes don't you need a Volt/Ohm meter or a actual tester?? Never heard of using the check engine light on a Ford?? If you get stuck goto Autozone, they can rent you a code tester. $30.00 dollar deposit, when you bring it back they will give you ALL your money back. Also you can get a node light there for around 10-15 dollars to check the injector plugs. That will tell you if the ECU is sending a signal to the injectors.
GOOD LUCK!! [Image: smile.gif]

you can use the check engine light or a volt meter. I tried both ways to get the codes. And got nothing. So went to Murry's today and bought a code reader. Still get no codes, not even 11. So Will read up on why I get no codes.

Get an code reader from the Zone try pulling the codes again. If no codes them it's prolly a fried EEC.

87 twin. Go to the test connector. You will see 2 slots (connections) at the top of the connector, and 4 slots underneath the two.

The last slot to the right of the 4 is the fuel pump test connector.

With the ignition switch OFF, ground this slot to the negative terminal of the battery.
DO NOT USE the test light as a ground wire.

Now turn ON the ignition switch. The pump should start and run for as long as the ignition switch remains on.

Do not attempt to start the vehicle at this point if the pump starts.

By doing this, it will check the complete electrical circuit from the battery to the pump.

Get back with the results.

First things first, if you are going to test the computer with a $1.99 test light then you might as well by a another computer before you even touch it.

Seems like you have an ignition wire not getting power. Does all of your lights come on at ignition?
