So my 90 died in the middle of the road two weeks ago. An I have slowly been working my way through troubleshooting it, but I need some help. This is what I know as of now..
-Compression is in spec
-I have spark.
-Fuel pump runs as it should. But I do not know if it is making it all the way forward. I replaced the filter.

If I attempt to start the car, it will kick sputter and die.
If I hold the throttle open, it will just keep cranking.

I'm not sure what to try next. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Read up and know how CIS works. Check for intake air leaks. I mean large leaks [like an air hose that is off].
Nothing obvious. But the car doesn't run long enough (at all) for me to do a starter fluid test to try it.
