    Question 1987 VAN cranks, turns over, starts and dies.

    Hey TVT, I hope this isn:t a redundant post since I have browsed through everything
    from fuel pump to circuit relays and around to fusable links.

    *NOTE* I installed a new starter, distributor cap & rotor, spark plugs and wires one
    month before this happened

    A few weeks back my 1987 Toyota Van , SPACE BUNNY, stalled out about
    3 miles from my home.
    After a tow home and some tinkering/researching on TVT, I went ahead and dropped
    the tank for a fuel pump change as well as three specified relays suggested in a
    thread I can't seem to find now (one cylindrical behind steering column, one
    cylindrical behind radio and one square behind radio/glove compartment.).

    I also installed a Fuel Filter which I had from another Toyota as the initial filter was
    passing less flow as the replacement.
    (Potentially, I installed the hoses backwards as I now have zero fuel entering the filter?)

    Also, since Ive owned and run Space Bunny (20K miles), I have never heard the fuel
    pump kick on. Still don't after replacement.

    I appreciate your time and guidance.

    Thanks, Byron

    okay, new discovery as of now.
    battery is reading 11.75ish V and drops to 10V with turn of key....

    but, occasionally starts in-between lond rested attempts of starting.

    Battery needs attention nonetheless it appears.
