    Service Manual

    Thanks Jeremy..... I bought the CD eons ago for like $10 to go with my factory 25 lb. hardcopy and it has been invaluable for 'long-distance' diagnosis.

    PWR BRK current draw

    Coolant Fan Delay Relay..... unplug that and see if it kills the draw.... it's the closest to the windshield of the three on the DS fenderwell, known for failure and running the battery down, and not necessary for proper fan function..... just unplug it and tape it off. it's in the same...

    bad idle UP and Down

    if it runs fine when you nail it, it's (probably) not the maf... if it has the stock chip, it is hard to tell... they idle like crap at cold start... mine always died at least once, even when new... very light throttle with the stock chip was not great either... hiccups were very common...

    valve spring / pushrod question

    stay with the stock pushrods in your case.... the valve springs you are ordering are basically stock replacements...(not a bad idea, and probably needed)... stock pushrods are fine with those springs.... clean 'em up and be your money for something beneficial... new pushrods are...

It was his last trip to Indy...

    bumper guards

    I installed the 'bumperette/guard' assemblies on my car (they were missing from a previous accident) without removing the bumper. As I remember, it took a bit of a contortionist act under the front of the car, and a unique combination of socket/extensions, but wasn't a big deal... took maybe...
