[DML] lambda warning & would like tech advice

OK, I'll tackle the easy one first.
The Lambda Light is controlled by, the Lambda Counter, a device that is  
connected to the speedometer cable.  It's sole purpose in life is to supply  +12 
Volts to turn on the Lambda Light, when it measures that the car has  traveled 
30,000 miles.  When it turns on you can reset it by turning the  little 
plastic "bump" on its side that has two little indentations in it.   BTW it is 
located under the dash.  You can't miss it as it has the  speedometer cable going 
into and another one coming out of it. It has a little  window that displays a 
number which should be the percent of 30,000, ie if the  car has 15,000 miles 
it would read 50 (%).
Regarding the second question...
Please tell me (us) what sea foam is?  Have you replaced the fuel  filter?
What do you mean by..."and RPM's are limited"
and ..."car appears to loose power and not idle  up after a few hundred 
yards. "

BTW Do you have a set of manuals for the car?  If not you  should!

Have just stated  a 1982 for the first time since 1992. New fuel pump
cleaned tank, ran sea  foam thru system, then replaced fuel
distributor, injectors and warm up  regulator that had 3000 miles since
rebuild.  Car will start but lambda  warning light comes on and RPM's
are limited and car appears to loose power  and not idle up after a few
hundred yards. Help!
