Thanks for the detail. But could that cause the engine to "hang" between shifts? It doesn't do it all the time. I'm going to try resetting the base idle.

I'd assume you have to set the idle CO by tapping into the exhaust manifolds. Who would have this tool? Also, how much is a Fluke these days? I remember my dad paid several hundred for his 77 a while back.
