Re: [T3] Vapor Lock?

<x-charset iso-8859-1>

Your making progress!

*Checked the head temp sensor before I started the car today: 1800 ohms.
*Drove it a few miles to my studio and tested it there: 180 ohms.

This will run the car fairly well if not very well... you might run a wee
bit rich when hot and lean when cold but this can be delt with later or by
swapping in a good other sensor.

 *In the process noticed that my spark wire cooling boots are pretty
*#4 boot is cracked. Anyone know where I can get some more?

Anywhere.. same as the bug.. I have some too.

*Then I went to the distributor and cleaned the trigger contacts. They
*it. Cleaned out the distributor in the process and threw in a new set of
*points. Reset the timing. Everything's running smoothly.

Probably your problem.. I clean my trigger points every 15K.. if the dist is
dirty or over greased then they need cleaning more often.

*While I was at it I
*switched in a new fuel pump voltage relay and my engine cuts out much more
*directly than it used to when I turn the key off. (Every now and then my
*used to diesel on hot days.)

Sounds like your relay was sticking..  that would explain things... good

*So now I just have to wait for another hot muggy day to see what happens.
