That's a weird one.
It could not hurt to run an extra ground to the engine or factory header, in case something tweeks the clamp/strap under load.

If you've got the time, could you try alternate ground straps - as Tom suggests - and see if they work when the muffler strap is removed?

Yeah, we will be adding about 10 grounds although probably just another one in case the exhaust has clearance issues again until we move the battery to the trunk.
British vehicles are my last ditch attempt to keep the nasty Italian thoughts in my mind at bay. So far its working.

I know this is an old thread, but Im getting the same thing.
So Im going to check my alterntor tomorrow
check fuel pressure
possibly replace the Fuel relay (its under the pass seat, right ?)
and check the ground strap, but Im probably going to
add some too.
The ground to the exhaust I take it went to the chassis somewhere ?
Ill probably just end up adding a few all around
motor to chassis, chassis to battery.
thanks for the tips
My mom will forever live in me and
never be forgotten, one day Ill see her again

Re: No start (actually starts then dies)

This is why I like this forum over fee book. I just got a white svx had a spare engine in the trunk in the front was a japanese import motor had custom exhaust. and the back seat was missing but it was staked with parts. so removed rear engine cleaned out parts took out front seats and carpet cleaned carpet looks good in side now replaced right front with one I had same color looking better exempt for the hole in the hood and funky hood scoop. Ok now the guy said trans bad yet to see but also could not get it to keep running. I got it for 700. tried to start it it wood start and die read this post looked at the batt and head passed the factory batt cables and just had one to the starter and a ground to the stater bolt. so put the factory ground on and it not only starts but runs great exempt noisy injectors all 6 tap tap tap got some injector cleaner in now. so next is to put a seat back in and see what the trans does it also could have been funky with no grounds.
Thanks all this place is great info source.
