Re: '86 4ks airflow pot

Yes, Scott ... thanks so much for passing along those little nuggets you're 

On the MC engine, the only thing that the airflow sensor position pot is used 
for is determining the fuel economy on the trip computer.  I managed to get a 
couple hundred $$ off the price of my '88 thanks to this as it basically made 
the trip computer useless.  After cleaning I find the computer to continue to 
be pretty optomistic, but it does work.  I looked into buying a replacement 
from the dealer ... if you need a laugh sometime try asking that one ...
