[DML] Re: Fuel issues - Replaced nearly everything

Thank you for the feedback, it was greatly appreciated. I did get 
her to start, the problem was the plunger on the fuel cutoff switch. 
(Stupid me!) The accumulator is brand new.

I will be adjusting the CO screw later on this week, in an effort to 
fix the funky idle. From there, I'll take her in to a shop to get 
setup to pass emissions (required here in AZ). 

Personally, I think my next investment will be the AC esp with the 
heat we have here in the summer, shortly followed by putting on my 
stainless coolant resovoir (a must in the heat)
