Here is an important fact -
When cold the car starts up perfectly and runs for a few seconds perfectly then begins to get rough as it warms. Within 10 seconds of starting it runs crappy. This is why I believe the problem is AFR related (fuel or vac leak).[/QUOTE]

Brian. Check your thermotime switch. It is my understanding that if it goes bad it will continue to provide a ground path after initial start which would result in flooding of the engine via the cold start valve. Should be easy to test by disconnecting the ground lead. Its a stretch, but...
