for sure before we both plop down a considerable chunk of change  for a 
new/rebuilt one?

No, it's not a  typo. My D starts fine, even cold. Then a few minutes later, 
it  farts, stumbles and backfires, with a hollow muffler sound and an extreme 
loss of power. In about a minute, it's all over, and I can roar  off. Not a 
problem when it was just driven a short time before. Any  thoughts on this 
infernal flatulence?>>
Hi Josh-
Got the answer to this, at least in my case. I knew it wasn't a warm up  
regulator I needed, since I already replaced it last winter. Although a  loose vac 
hose can nullify the benefit of it. After talking twice to PJ Grady's,  I 
took the cover off the RPM relay in the electrical compartment, buffed the  relay 
electrical contacts with an emery board, and the problem disappeared. (I  
ordered a new RPM relay as a precaution.) You don't get service- or answers-like  
that at your corner gas station or AutoZone.
