The fuel pressure needs to be between 56 to 63 lbs. A dead head pressure is even higher. (just checking the fuel pump). The 4.3L is notorious for the injectors, spider lines, and the fuel regulator leaking. You do a fuel bleed down test, build up the pressure by cycling the key to build up pressure, with the key off watch the gauge and pressure should not drop more that 5 lbs in 3 minutes. If so the injectors, spider lines , and regulator need to be replaced as a unit in order to have long lasting results.
