    I just finished a valve adjustment. It started right up sounded ok, then went to 3k rpm and sat there for a minute or so, then the rpm dropped and ramped back up. It started cycling between 3k and almost stalling. I shut it off and looked for vacuum leaks or a disconnected sensor. Didn't see...
