[DMCForum] Re: Re: ATTN: Bill Robertson

This is like jailhouse correspondence -- EVERYBODY knows our business...

Silicone can not be applied topically. Need to separate mating
surfaces, apply a reasonable bead, then perform TWO torquings:
1) gentle torque, just enough to evenly distribute silicone but not
squish out entirely. Let dry overnight
2) final torque

BTW: your car doesn't idle like a traditional vacuum leak. Why not put
a vacuum gauge on the cold start tube just to be sure. 

Will come up Saturday morning, with some vacuum caps (no ECU -- sorry,
traded to John Hervey for an RPM relay. I think I got the better part
of that deal).

#5939 is the most boring piece of hardware in my driveway. No fuss. No
surprises. Just turn the key and drive. Its reliability is becoming

At least it is filthy (hasn't had a bath since Fall Foliage). Does
that count?

No place in Sanford has 3/4" vacuum caps, so I can't go to a manual
idle circuit to see if that will solve the problem. I'm kind of stuck
in a rut. I was also going to see if I could buy your idle speed ECU
from you since you're running a manual idle circuit, and promise to
help you install those new speakers on top of that. The 3rd will be
fine... I'll be in Charlotte over new years, but will be back at my
parents in Sanford by the 3rd. FYI the new CPR really has made a
difference in the running rich when cold problem. Hasn't completely
eliminated it... but darn close. How's #5939 treating you? -Louie
