With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

You have a carb.
Are you getting fuel when you pump the accelerator?
Look in the carb. when you take the A/C off.

Guess I figured a '90 truck would have a carb.
Oh well.... shot my idea down.
Thanks for the info. All my Toyota pickups had carbs until my '01.
(I forgot my '89 Land Cruiser has FI.)

Sometimes carbs are easy for trouble-shooting and sometimes not.

there is a new fuel filter..
ya, no carb.

when i took the bed off the get to the fuel pump. the bloody gas tank doesnt have a spot of rust on it, but wouldnt you know that the fuel line going to the tank is rusted to f. i was knocking a bit of the rust off so it didnt fall into the tank when i took the fuel pump housing out, while doing this the fuel line actually started spraying fuel everywhere. so now its covered in cat litter to soak up the gas so i can fix this hole.. fun times.

anyways.. its already all apart with the part ordered. i'll let you know if it actually was the fuel pump not.
