If the fuel pump is priming, then I would look at the ECU.

Good luck
I will check this today.

It primes so intermittently..

Aren't Hondas of that era known for a solder joint going bad causing the fuel pump relay (under the dash) to not work?

I think it's called the "main relay"

They are. I have a new relay in place.

Also, this is one of the reasons I won't leave BITOG alone: the knowledge base there. My goal is to sneak on, and be accepted, in time.

Miller88, this is for you.

Please put on BITOG somehow, maybe in the "I have to put this head on myself" update.
