Dirk, if that's the 3500S you got from me, I think it still had the AED 
installed. It was normally (for this car) out of the loop via the 
shutoff or bypass valve on the AED. I wonder if someone fiddled with 
this at the show? Did the car seem to be over-rich or lacking on the 
oxygen side of the ratio? If I remember correctly, letting the AED into 
the loop made the car easy to start when you might want it choked, but 
the car was set up to run at normal temperatures with the AED bypassed 
via that valve. I know that's not how the AED was intended to be used, 
but that was the way this particular car was set up when it came to me.

Hope that helps.
