Good catch!

She needs new plug wires. Too high resistance in the wire will bring the 
voltage up high at the distributor.

I had a similar problem when I was using the wide cap 7.5L EFI 
distributor and one of the wire boots were making contact with the 
engine screen.

> I've been struggling with Lori's Pantera for some time. I think I have the electric choke and fast idle set perfectly, and it works fine in the garage, but on the road it stumbles and just doesn't want to idle. Last night I had to back it out of the garage in the dark. I was looking back through the window when a flash caught my eye....
