Thanks guys. I got my neighbor (a forklift mechanic) over here yesterday afternoon. We went by your recommendations and even though we did not have a vacum tester.....we found that one of the plastic vacum lines was severely restricted by an oily gooey substance..... I think it was the hose from the boverboost protection switchover valve. We put it back together and she runs like a scalded dog now...... and viola....she now runs awesome even before the thermostat opens!!!!!... best we can figure... the goo completely restricted the line until the engine compartment reached operating temperature... and then the goo softened enough for a little vacum to get through. Thanks for the advice. You guys are awesome.
