Well, since the last update, I cleaned the pins on the speed relay. Still had the problem.

Then I shorted the relay in the speed relay. Seemed good at first, then still had the issue.

Finally back at the yellow relay. Sometimes when I touch or twist the yellow relay, the car would run fine, or sputter and cough, or die.

So I disassembled the yellow relay and determined the contacts in the relay itself are oxidized.

With my ohm meter across pins 30 & 87a, just touching the armature of the relay causes resistance readings from a few ohms all the way up to 500 ohms. I think I've found the problem.

I'll clean the contacts and check resistance again.
