  Thanks for the reply- plugs look good and so does spark.  I'll check the
fuse, but the car was running when I parked it in the morning and the pump
primes at key one, so I'm sort of doubtful it's that.  The problem is that
the differential pressure is too high, leading to a very lean condition, so
I'm thinking DPR but it could be the fuel distributor as well. Hope not,
that one's spendy!
