Here is the update. Mark seems to have hit the nail on the head regarding the boost issue. I finally got around to working on the car again and the boost recirculation valve was a mess. The two ends were well sealed from the passage of time, but the gaskets were disintegrating and many of the pieces were inside and stuck to the spring and the walls. Lots of junk inside that clearly did not belong. The piston moved with a great deal of force, but not freely and could easily have stuck. After cleaning it all up and even before lubrication the piston now moves freely.

Looking forward to getting it back together now.
