Looks like the fuel pressure should be 38 to 44 lbs. Probably should check the fuel regulator by hooking up a fuel pressure gauge, and with the engine running, idling, unplug the vacuum line to the fuel regulator. The fuel pressure should raise up about 7 lbs. If the fuel pressure does not raise, then replace the fuel regulator.

I'm going to take a wild-ass guess that it's the thermo-time switch starving the works~

You know what bob, it could also be the temperature sending unit. They can go bad and not even know it. It is the primary sensor for the computer in how it would adjust all other sensors relating to fuel.

well you have to tell yourself "what would H25" say...and he's say that Toyota's practically Never break down....But with the age ...and corrosion (even through exposure to the moisture of ambient air) we cannot say what the computer thinks...but we can look at the conditions for it gathering data...and do believe this troublesome goodie is at fault...one could TEST that one to see if it responds to temperature with a cup of tea~?

Got the truck running - put the breather back on the throttle body and truck cranked and has been running great, has to have the breather on for a toyota to crank. Not like Fords, Chevys and other brands they will crank and run without throttle body breather on, Thanks

as rowefast said, the fuel pressure is a concern~ make sure that it has enough pressure for a fuel injected system such as yours~
