Re: [DML] Fuel issues - Replaced nearly everything

The plunger up versus down (man do i feel dumb there!) fixed the no-
start issue.  Now that I think of it, i mucked with the fuel cut-off 
switch when I went out of state recently... 

The car started up great!

Love the look of the stainless lines running under there, and the 
car when moving sounds like a new car...

Question on the idle though... i seem to be watching the rpm needle 
bounce between 500 and 1500.. If I feather the gas, i can get her to 
rest at 1000... Someone in AZ-D mentioned today that he thought that 
this is caused by the Lambda unit? 

Could it be that CO screw is out of adjustment?


-Rob - it was definitely a pleasure doing business with you.
