      yes I could upgrade to the later style, but I'm not sure if I want to. I'd rather keep it as original as possible, so goodies like the pertronix that are an invisible upgrade appeal to me ;) After...

      This sounds 100% like a residual fuel pressure issue then.

      I just bit the bullet and bought a new accumulator, and all the related hoses, and went to town. The hoses and fittings are likely...

      Thanks guys, Sure was a ton better today as I spent a good hour idling in traffic with a rock solid 950rpm idle.

      Sounds like you could have a residual pressure issue, have you checked the anti-return valve (fuel pump check valve) at the outlet of the fuel pump?

      Solved!

      It was the pertronix module. I thought I eliminated it before, but I must have been fooled by the issue only occurring when warm.

      I noticed while checking the timing (again) that when the engine...

      no swap, no AC, basic as it gets for a 1.6L.

      Here's a bunch of photos. You can see the breather valve (the white thing in my hand) and that I put a screw through it to seal it up. It's the...

      thanks for bumping this.

      I spent quite a bit of time verifying this when I had my TB off to do the gasket. The screw was still sealed on my TB with some sort of glue, and seems to be adjusted...
