This car has sat over a year, I got too frustrated with it.
Today put a new battery in it, checked everything as before.
I cranked it over continuously, while pumping the accelerator A LOT.
Eventually the motor fired weakly, then began to gain power. I was able to maintain revs and even control rpm as long as I maintained revs well above idle.
As I let off the accelerator, the power died and the motor eventually stalled. I can fire it up by pumping the accel furiously, but the motor will respond only to accelerator way above idle.
What to check / test next?
