  recap:  86 4kq, stalls after starting.  Differential pressure regulator
current good, system pressure and fuel delivery rate good.

   The next test according to bently was to check the fuel return line
volume out of the lower chamber of the fuel distributor, and that looked to
be a reallll hassle- corroded hardline in close quarters, ugh.  So I copped
out on that and checked the differential pressure regulator resistance
instead- out of spec at about 28.5 ohms.  Hmmmm...

   Lifted the hood on my 87 4kq, took the regulator out and swapped them.
Now the 86 runs perfect, just like it did :)

   Q1:  Can the bad DPR be 'fixed'?

   Q2:  Anyone have a 4kq DPR they'd like to sell?  Ideally, I need at least
one mounting screw as well...
