Yes. it is running fine at higer RPM.

 

When dropping down to idle it will hold a few seconds, then the tach needle jumps all over, then quits.

 

Seems to be electronic  ??  New fuel filter, cleaned the TPS contacts.

 

Hope for some ideas  !!

Check for side play of the distributor shaft.
You want almost none.
Common fault.

Right about that, 1000 +  !!   Have .060 to .090 in movement of the shaft.

 

Has a screw down cap, which was replaced with the rotor.

 

NAPA and others cannot find the replacement.

 

Anyone have a part ## or where to get a good rebuilt ??

 

Or, anyone have a good used one to part with  ??

I believe these are the guys General Disorder recommended. Look in their rebuilt products section.

you can use an 85-86 ea82t distributor with a little modification, has to be those years though.
