    Just a warning- Make sure your louvers are not attached if you haul/tow them facing backwards.

    If they worked by pressing them manually, it could be they have moved because the mounting/adjusting screws were loose (or mounted incorrectly).

    NP!

    lol - The spare?

    Just curious- With smoothness in mind only, does it idle perfectly in open loop now as in post 21 or significantly better?

    COOL!
    Sounds like your O2 sensor is cleaning up. (Damn screws ;-)

    Several ways to change the plug wires HERE. I'd do the cap and rotor while I was in there.

    I'm with you on the O2 sensor since disconnecting it would set the dwell to a constant ~45.

    I can see using the analyser on the PRVs w/o an idle speed system. But I don't see hooking it up, setting the RPM with the common brass screw, then shut it. Granted, the manual says it will...

    They can't screw with my hair's color anymore. However I do have an occasional problem with temptations to pull it.

    +1

    FWIW- It sounds like it might be set up correctly, so between the two, I'd lean toward the CLS and try the caps since back in post 24 it was the passenger side acting up.
