Well I had hoped to post a video of the beast running - instead I will post a plea for help (and duplicate it in the electrical section)
I hooked everything up, fuel and wiring that is and turned the key - nothing.
I tightened the nut on the starter solenoid turned the key, and it turns over
But nothing else.
The fuel pump has not power, and there is no spark.
I have checked all the grounds (that I can find).
I have reconnected a couple of wires that were left over after removing the air bag stuff (this at least gave me lights on the dashboard)
I added a wire to run the fuel pump directly temporarily - this proved that the pump will not work with the top mounted fittings - so I moved the feed fitting to the bottom of the tank. I now have fuel circulating manually.
Any ideas why I have no spark or feed to the fuel pump? I have one red wire on a connector with 3 wires that is spare after removing the air bag stuff, and one green and white wire that I cut at the fuel inj. fuse but went to the air bag loom.
Everything else is as Mazda intended, I think. Well there is one spare large connector in the vicinity of the dash that has no label ( I labeled everything as I disconnected it.)
