Hello Jim

No emissions testing for my year car in Texas so will have to look into what you suggest.

Yes, the idle is oscillating up and down and the exaust is very dark/rich. Perhaps I just need to adjust the idle mixture screw? I have thought about doing that already, but have been hesitant as the problem started without me making any adjustments.

I just went out and messed with the black relay you mentioned - I pulled it out, cleaned the pins and put it back in - taking the relay in and out with the engine running has a similar effect as to removing and installing the fuel pump relay #2 but not as dramatic - the idle drops a bit when removed and then increases and runs smoothly when replaced but only for 30 seconds or so.
