    Replay with Quote seems to be broken now also.

    You're at opposite ends of the "way to do things" spectrum.

    Good end - I checked the idle throttle switch and full throttle switch at the ECU

    32 psi is not low for idle. It's actually a little bit high. Maybe not because of the FPR or pump, but because intake vacuum is low due to poor running. The FPR drops pressure to offset intake...

    Since the temperature for failure is so low, apparently, you might try the opposite of the typical ignition module over-heat test. Instead of cooling the module, heat it up. Start the car, let it...

    The site's acting weird and won't let me add to my last post so...I was going to add that the reason you don't get a spark is because the current through the coil is never shut off. That's also why...

    The coil got hot just because the key was On? That would be short circuit somewhere after the negative post of the coil. The module could very well be shorted internally. That would heat up the...

    I almost mentioned the GM HEI also. But I think that 1983 used the E12-92 module, as opposed to E12-80, which has a timing advance circuit, for emission purposes. Kind of like the dual point/pickup...

    Looks like Rockauto has one for ~$85. But with the ZX distributors there are other things that tend to break, like the stator magnet, or the pickup coil, or the bushings in the distributor (which...

    You can connect a jumper wire to the negative post of the coil. Leave the other end hanging in air. Disconnect the center wire of the coil from the distributor cap and place it very close, about a...

    Is the offset the same? Might be better off to use an adapter/spacer if the Bimmer wheels are set in compared to Nissan. If they're set out, then the wheels won't fit right anyway even with the new...

    This web page does a good job, in my opinion, of explaining cyclic loading based fatigue, and how it is different from yield strength. You only get so many cycles. Cracking or other stress-risers...

    I've removed a couple of those gears. As Darrel says, a small drift or punch is needed to get the pin started out. I had to use pliers to finish pulling it. It's pretty tight.

    You kind of...

    Not much detail, can't even tell if it has an engine. But looks kind of interesting

    To the basics of the original post - I like the find on the alternative AAR. I've seen the newer designs and pondered if they could be adapted. I'd probably get one from a wrecking yard if I went...

    I didn't say the gases weren't checked. I'm just wondering what you meant when you said that it's still too rich. It doesn't matter how many modifications you make if you keep tuning those...

    The stock EFI system is a collection of parts that were all designed to work together. So, with the cam, you're out of spec. anyway.

    I can't help but point out the contradiction in the above...

    Have you tried the tapping/beating on the ECU trick yet? I've seen it described as working for several people. I also had the transistors in an ECU go bad and they are usually heat sensitive. The...

    The first gassy problem sounds like the typical hot injector hot start problem.

    The stall right before you got home could be several things - ignition module, ECU, fuel supply. Did you try to...

    Isn't actual measured clearance what matters? Actually I missed a zero and you might be too loose. 10 thousandths versus 1 - 1.8 thousandths spec. My mistake.

    You can't damage things by going smaller. Did you find one that was bad? Sometimes you can tell by feel. Or use the meter and measure resistance.
