Right now I'm in the Mini on I-71 between Mid-O and Columbus.  The urq is parked  a bit south of Columbus.  I'll hit a FLAPS or two in Columbus to see what I can find. 

I've been told that if it's an ignition problem, the tach should drop immediately to zero.  I definitely haven't seen that.  The tach has been accurately reflecting engine revs, except one time while it was stumbling at idle and I was playing with the throttle, I saw the tach jump to around 3500 rapidly then back down (engine stayed around idle). 

Thanks for all the tips guys.  I'll keep everyone updated on my progress here.
