Also found a professionally hard bound edition of both the chassis and engine performance manuals. Nice!

Unbelievable! I go out this morning and she starts right up (like she should!) and I let her sit and idle for 10-15 minutes to get up to temp, hop in and drive her up to the grocery store. Shut her off, go in the store, come back out (10-15 minutes later) and she starts right back up (like she should!) and i drive around the neighborhood for a few minutes like everything is normal and nothing ever happened...

I'm thouroughly convinced it's that jumper, or something at the tank. There's no other explanation for the way it acts with that 3/4 or more in the tank. Right now, with just a hair over a half of a tank, she runs perfectly! No stalls, no no-start conditions, no issues at all! Just like last time... to the "T"!

So my plan is to run the tank down as low as I can, then pull it. Any tips, or other things I might need to look out for when pulling the tank would be helpful. I guess I could wait until my Engine Performance Manual arrives..

Oh hey guys I think I found something. Well, I know I found something... but I just may have discovered the problem.

Look at these next couple pics. I noticed there's a skinny looking vacuum port that was left open. Looking at various diagrams online, I assume this had air coming out of it, hence why they just left it open after the lean burn conversion.

And I asked the guys over at the FMJbody forums about it with this pic to help:




Then, I decided maybe I should actually check the other plugs... you see that small plug right under the red "W"??? looks plugged right?


NOT!!!




That's where my whistle was! I think I may have just found the problem...

What do you guys think? a wide open plug like that sucking air cause my stall/no start issue?
