[DML] YET ANOTHER PROBLEM WITH JOSH'S BEAST



Again, I'm scratching my head.  Two weeks ago, we took Josh's car out for a spin.  It ran perfectly for about 8-9 miles.  After we got back, we shut it down and checked everything over for any problems.  After about a half hour, tried to start it up, and NO GO.

Okay, hot start problem.  Hence, all the posts about the accumulator.  I had to go out of town for a week, so yesterday was the first day I was able to fire it up after changing the bad accumulator.  One half second of cranking and it fired right up.  Idle was a bit low (650-700) but it was running.  Wasn't able to accelerate and as the car warmed up, I kept having to add throttle to keep it running (up to 2000 rpm).  As soon as the thermostat opened, I let off the throttle and it died.  It would not start after that.

Today, I tried again----exactly the same thing.  Fired right off, low idle, and I had to keep adding throttle to keep it running.  As soon as I let off the throttle, it died again.

Does anyone have any idea why changing the fuel accumulator would cause this problem?  And I can't put the old one back in, since it is the one I cut in half.
