	Wow -- I've had the same (OK, very similar) problem with my
	'85 5KT, 2144 cc KH, 135K (but problem started at 122K or so).

	When my problem first started, it was intermittent -- it would
	mysteriously disappear sometimes. Now it is temperature-dependent:
	it's almost normal when cold, and is terrible when hot. Idles

	I've eliminated idle-stabilizer, plugs, wires, cap and rotor. Must
	be a fuel-system problem, but I have no idea how to proceed.

	Let me know what you guys find out ..
