I just ran codes and came up clean OTHER than a 41 (running lean). So it
is either running out of fuel OR an ignition miss. I will first start by
R&R'ing the FPR (for the hell of it...I have another -- plus it seems to
be vacuum related) and then move to the TFI. Anyone had luck relocating it
to the fender? I think I might IF I can find nice jumper ends.
