i did that im getting 40 pounds key on and running


OK that sounds about right for idle, I don't have specs in front of me, so I'll assume you've checked that is the correct spec. It should be higher with key on, engine off (KOEO), then drop some when engine running at idle. There are a couple other things you can check on fuel pressure - 1) pull vacuum line to regulator and plug it, pressure should climb about 5 psi. 2) Turn engine off and watch fuel pressure, it should remain constant for about a minute before falling.
