Re: Hard to start and STRONG smell of gas when it does
If the injector assembly or regulator were leaking you wouldn't smell it at the motor because its inside the intake pouring into the cylinders and getting blown out the exhaust. the fact that you have to "pump" the gas to start tells me you are putting the ecu in clear flood mode because there is too much fuel in the intake. go rent a fuel pressure gauge from an auto parts store and test fuel pressure and leakdown. this is a very common problem more than likely its the regulator leaking.
Bigger tires and traction adders just means you get stuck in more inaccessible places.
