Engine not quite right

Not sure whats going on with my 88 urq, last night it would just not pull 
top end in 5th and I could actually feel the power of the engine going on 
and off. If I disconnect the Air Sensor that sits on the end of a rubber 
tube to the rear left hand side of the engine, it seems to make it run a 
whole lot better. Doing this also stops the *over run* problem, where I 
take my foot off and the revs dont die straight away, they sort of hover 
around the 1.5-2K region then die down slowely after about 4-5 seconds.

Anyway I took the plunge this morning and rang BR Motorsport, asked if 
they could possibly sort it out in a day (its a 4-500 mile round trip for 
me) and Im a going to be a bit stuck if they don't. They said they carry 
most bits (sensors etc) in stock, so it should be no problem.

So 20th December is looking good.
