Before you hot wired it, did you replace the fuel pump relay? If you didn't than you shouldn't of hot-wired it. Because your running a hot wire for no reason. " the distributor modulo operates the fuel pump and injectors, it will not fire". By you hot wiring it you burned out the modulo. The distributor modulo is mounted on the back of the distributor and it takes a special tool to take it off. So if you didn't replace the fuel pump relay, you burned out the modulo. So you will have to replace them both. Do not pull the distributor, buy the special tool, are you will get it out of time and have a real problem!!! Post back if you need more help. Tom
