1984 944

Fuel System

Vehicle Information: Model(924/944): 944; Year: 1984; Engine (type, size, modifications): 2.5L; Total Mileage: 114k;

I have a 1984 Porsche 944 with 114k miles on it. A couple years ago, the Manual Transmission failed abruptly. I had to leave the car sit in the garage for a year due to an overseas military deployment. After I returned, I bought a used Transmission and decided to replace the clutch as well. I had done 1 previous clutch job on an 86 turbo successfully, and although it was very difficult, I was confident.After finishing the clutch job, the car would not start. I should point out that I had to replace a flywheel reference unit when I did the clutch, I could not get the old one out in tact. When I squirt a bit of fuel in the cylinders through the spark plug holes, it runs briefly, so I know I am getting spark. I did the test prescribed in my shop manual to check fuel quantity output. It was not getting fuel. I replaced the Fuel pump, fuel filter, and fuel relay. I re-performed the fuel test. It was delivering plenty, more than the 850ml in 30 seconds that the manual states. The car would still does start.Do I have a fuel regulator or fuel damper problem? Do I need to adjust the reference unit? I thought since I am getting spark, the reference unit was properly adjusted. DME or DME relay seemed unlikely to be the problem, since before this whole thing started with the Transmission, I had no problem with the DME or DME relay. Any thoughts / suggestions?
