[DML] Re: Lack of power at low RPMs

All is well.  Thanks for the suggestions.  I found a little water in 
one of the plug wells.  One of the plug wires under the air filter 
came off a little too easy, may have been loose.  But I think it may 
have been a discharged battery, because it still ran poor but got 
better as I drove it, until it completely went away.  I think I'll 
replace the battery with an Optima Red 34/78.
