You don't need to take mine apart - you can see the aneroid membrane
from underneath.

Yup.  Mine is the type pictured in Fig. 5-4 on page 16 of Chapter 6.

Gently wondering - increasing vacuum to the separate pressure
regulator cuts control pressure a little, but system pressure a _LOT_.

This seems an unfortunate effect at high load.  What I might try this
evening is disconnecting the air mass sensor to pressure regulator
hose at the air mass sensor end, and just let it dangle.  Then I'll
run a second hose from the air mass sensor to the warm-up regulator,
using the vacuum enrichment port currently covered by the dust-cap.

This should demonstrate, at least, whether my problem really _is_ a
lack of enrichment under load.
