Groesbeck Hurricane,

I guess everyone is waiting for me to get on here and admit my mistake one more time. I mixed up the wiring harness for the CIS after my rebuild. Both plugs are the same for the WUR and the cold start injector (CSI). The CSI is only supposed to get power while the starter is engaged, the WUR gets power all the time. Mixing these up results in the CSI running all the time (RICH). The symptoms are:

The cars starts right away because you have been running the CSI since turning the car on.

It will not idle because it is so rich. The idle speed just drops to zero no matter how much air you add from the idle screw.

To check if you have this condition, just use a volt meter to see if you are getting power to the WUR with the key in the run position.

When all else fails, tow it to John Walkers Workshop - of course that might take a while from Texas.

Good luck - Rex
