Another update. I adjusted the clutch play finally, the throwout bearing didn't engage until about 3" into the clutch throw. The clutch was never fully disengaging. After adjusting it to 1/8" of free play it shifts almost 100%, though second is still a little stubborn sometimes, particularly on a downshift.

Now I just need to get the car to idle while hot, but apparently there's an adjustment screw for this. So much to do and so little time.

Donít move the throttle stop, there is an idle air bypass screw.

I'll have to look into that. Still need to check the condition of the EGR and PCV valve, but I'm guessing it's not good.
