  The electrics were much improved by '85, new fusebox & location, much
  better reliability, etc.

Might want to also check your fuel pressure.  I had these exact same
symptoms in my '83 UrQ, and it turned out to be a bad connection
to the fuel pump was causing a retarded current flow to it, thus
limiting fuel pressure.  Did they improve the electrics much by '88?
