No sweat, should be fun to do when it gets here. I really want that powerplant to be running top notch...and well, it is, but just have to get past the hard starts.

Then she will be MINT...the hottest Bonne on the block, as it were

Sorry Jim, I was replying to Real_ironman. Didn't mean to confuse you. (Or maybe I did--so I could escape with the Lexer Transcription Machine )

Hmmm...interesting

I tried a start cylce just now, for the first time in 2 days, the car did not start on the first try. When the second cycle began, it fired right up, and a waft of black smoke burst out the exhaust...for about half a second....

Shes gasping for gas..I'm sure of it

Black smoke sounds to me like a weeping injector dumping the pressure into one cyl.
