Default 1055 rons terminator problems HELP please

i have a 408 sbc with the 1055 just put it on over the winter and not right since. hard to start. missing half track. and even if i get it to stop missing still hard to start. started out with a 1/2 pump and even tried a 0 pump still nothing rons told me to start out with 90 return and 33 jets . but i have been up and down on both and still cant figure it out. the exhaust temp will not give me a good ready for some reason it is reading like 1500 degrees which is not right even took the terminator off and put a alch carb on it and still 1500 degrees i have tried almost everything please any infomation[/b]

Is it going WOT fuel on the fuel spool when you push in the fuel shutoff ? Does it still have the start-aid in it ? Whats tha barrel valve leak down and blade gap ? They are simple to tune.

A good starting point is to set the throttle blades at .002, set the leak down between 24%and 28%. With a 0-1/2 pump it should run with .085/.105 pill.
I suspect the barrel valve is set to way too much leakdown and at WOT you're going over center with that high of exhaust temp. It should run 1250/1350 at WOT under load.
One thing you didn't say are you running gas or alcohol? If you're running gas set the leakdown at 1/2 of what you would set it with alcohol.
I run both rons stuff and Hilborn, but all on alcohol. But i built a B/BLk that going to run gas with a hilborn stacks injection. It has been so long since i've ran gas i had to call Hilborn to find out what to set the leakdown to.
On the starting problem, turn off the swith and close the fuel shutoff at the same time that way the fuel doesn't drain back down from the injection. on my toilet bowl car it starts like a carb, but it is a little hard to start after it sets a week, but by the time the oil pressure comes up it's ready to start. I normally crank it with the swith off until oil pressure is up then flip the swith.

i am running alcohol . the leakdown is 28% and i even changed the barrel valve maybe thinking it was bad. i do have a starting aid on it. but even after the car is warmed up its hard to start. and yes i have talked to james at killer rons. he said to start at 90 return pill and 33 jets but no luck

X2, most of them are as easy to tune as falling off a log. Couple of things to look at, is the pump mounted low?(not higher than the tank) Have you syncronized the butterflys so that all close tight? Are the throttle shafts tight in the bores? Are yu running atleast a #8 line to the pump? and what size fuel filter are you running, it could be starving for fuel on top end.

Just a few guesses.
