      A loose support bracket at the back of the pump certainly would put more strain on something not designed for that strain. I think you will find that the problem is resolved. You should at least...

      I can only assume that the previous mechanic removed the spring so more fuel will be delivered. Not understanding how CIS works is the biggest issue with that system. That and old gas.

      Glad to...

      Can you reuse a headgasket after it has been compressed/run? Sure. Should you? NO! Better to do it right than to do it later.

      Drill the head off the bolt. Use a larger bit than the bolt size. Once the head is off, the threaded portion will just unscrew by hand.

      The trick with removing allen bolts is not to strip them....

      Not being there, it sure seems like a lot of parts were replaced and you still have the same problem.

      My background is that I've been a mechanic since 1980. I started working with Mercedes Benz...

      I think it's always funny how people thinking an engine swap will fix all problems. If you cannot fix a basic engine problem, I think swapping the wrong engine in a car is something way over your...

      If the pressures are the same when the problem happens, it's probably not fuel related. The pressures should not change [much, if any] once the engine is at operating temperature. If the control...

      The cable is certainly not a good location to do some prying. Word of advice, if the speedo gear drops into the transmission, the odds of you pulling out the transmission to get the gear out are...

      There may be a spec, but I have never seen it. If you did check the bearing clearances [plastigage] then I suspect you should be fine.

      There are just too many variables to have a spec. What kind...

      I doubt if the plunger is sticking. On decel, it's possible that the mixture will be leaner. In my opinion, 12 is way too rich for a steady state cruise mixture, heck, it's too rich for idle too.

      Yes, you can pretty much install anything you want as long as it fits into the head and the wire can plug on the top. How long with the wrong plug last? Who knows.
