Distrib is rebuilt, injector spray patterns are perfect, so its gotta be EHA related. At least that's what I believe, who knows...

I'll just adjust the screw and see what happens.

I think I'm 95% there now.

Took an old EHA out of my parts box -- looked kinda crappy. Cleaned it up with some carb cleaner inside + out. Plugged it in....ran like crap. Starts fine, but as soon as I pressed on the gas the rpm's would drop, so either its not producing enough fuel, or far too much. I decided on the former.

Took it off, unscrewed the back screw, gave it 1/2 turn clockwise aka rich. Plugged it back in and WOW!!! HUGE difference. Car runs QUICK off the line. I'm truly feel like its 95% back to normal now.

The only place its different is downshifting. The downshift button on pedal seems sluggish and the car does not "pull" too hard. I'm thinking maybe another 1/4 turn rich might do the trick?
So the new EHA I bought might still be ok -- just needs an adjustment, possibly lean as it "feels" like its flooding.

I have 2 weeks paid time off work right now because I am switching jobs, so I can finally wrap this up! Financial institutions and conflicts of interest....

And FINALLY success!!!! After a full year of running like complete crap, perseverance has paid off.



Wasn't even close either. Looks like the 24yr old cat is still functioning amazing!!

Do any of the #'s give any indication as to mixture being a little rich/lean? Just curious...
I wish they showed O2 + CO2%....

I did throw in 4 bottles of ISOheet and ran in 3rd gear 4500rpm on the freeway for 15mins as usually too Held idle at 2500rpm while waiting for ~10mins in line
