    I was almost thinking of installing doors on the front seeing as the damage has been done. I could store a spare quart of oil there (or weed, it's legal in my state now! but no smoking in my car!).

    Thinking...... could be many things, bad cold start injector, bad FPR, bad temp sensor. sounds like to much fuel is being dumped. Is there any black smoke when it does run?

    I left mine unglued for a summer. Not to hot here in seattle. It warped, I would glue it down (full cover 77 280z).

    First thing I notice from the pictures is the throttle return spring is totally incorrect, both in its location and style.

    I would suggest that you make sure all of the EFI systems are working properly before tricking the ECU. Only after you are sure would you consider inriching the mixture with added resistance.

    Hmmm, I am getting rusty on this since I have worked out most of the bugs on my 77. A leak at the intake manifold would cause a vacuum leak, this would lead to a lean condition, but youre vacuum...

    My car is a 77 so the electronics are a little different, but similar. My guess is a loose connection to the ignition control module or a failing ignition control module.

    yup just pop the rod out of the plastic clip. I hate replacing those handles, My hands do not fit in the tight space easily. Usually I end up loosing a little blood.
