    My car would idle to spec cold but when warmed up idle at 1000 RPM with the idle stop screw all the way out. That problem was bad deceleration springs. So unless your springs are really bad that...

    You don't let the throttle plates touch the body bore because it can make it stick closed. Both the plates and bore are soft metals and they will stick if closed with any force.

    Never had any leaking problems with my injection parts but I did have a leaking otterstat (screw in type) which seals with a copper crush washer. To get that to seal I used two crush washers instead...

    It would leak into the return line to the tank if the bellows inside were leaking.

    You can pull that return hose off and run the pump to see if fuel is flowing from the return.

    I ran a test to when control pressure would reach 40 PSI (warmed up engine) and it was less than one second running the OEM pump and OEM (large) accumulator. If you find yours takes longer to reach...

    Since you have two problems, power stays on and won't crank, the ignition switch is the common thing that I would guess to be at fault.

    Front connectors are in the washer bottle area. Not sure if you could get at them removing the drivers side headlight. Check your bulbs first but that would not stop me driving it temporarily.

    I also bought my D without the movie aspect affecting my purchase. When the cars were announced, I said "Someday I will own one". I was lucky to get mine for 15 K before the value shot up. Don't...

    Battery is bad or you have a weak connection. If you have a voltmeter you can track down the problem.

    I don't think you quench them after heating to anneal. At least when I was doing aircraft welding to anneal (take out stress from welding) you let the steel cool slowly.

    I've re-used copper washers many times without leaks. Everyone says one time use.

    Try installing the leaking line without one washer (you do know you need a washer on each side of the banjo...

    One thing I found that really improved the AC cooling is to open that condensation drain. The OEM design has that elbow crimped I guess to try to reduce air flow loss but it makes the drain plug up...

    The hoses have some tie wraps holding them onto the frame. You will have to find those and cut them or pull with a few hundred pounds to break them.

    I don't think you will have any problem...

    I used air pressure to blow mine out. If your orifice is plugged little air is needed if not you need more air flow but the hole is pretty small so still should work.

    Starting at post #32 I have a lot of test data for the temp gauge and sensor.

    Just to let you know. The idle micro-switch cuts off the ignition advance. It does not stop the idle ECU from trying to control idle RPM. So are you disconnecting one wire from the idle switch? ...

    With your idle switch disconnected you get ignition advance at idle on a warm engine which is why your idle RPM is higher.
