    it roared to life, got in line did parade drove home. Its
    acting like a fuel problem. Besides stalling at lights [bump
    starts fine] it also occasionally idle drops to 500 rpm and
    doesn't respond to the throttle, unless I shut it off and
    quick restart and acts normally.
    Side note: the ignition switch will shut off engine, but
    dash lights stay on. Have to use Master Battery kill
    switch or battery goes flat. It's rapidly declining in
    reliability.....more ideas?
    You need to fix that "dash lights stay on" problem first and it may fix other problems. If you don't know how to read a schematic and use a voltmeter maybe someone close can help you.

    Sounds like more than one circuit to me.
    (Relay hanging?)

    Do the marker, tail, or other lights stay on when the dash (?instrument & panel?) lights stay on?

    Pulled all the fuses with battery master on
    Didn't shut off dash battery light [the only one
    lit up]. Will check starter and alternator wires
    to see if anything is touching.

    Try unplugging the NY (Brown/Yellow) wire at the alternator first.
