    4 lbs cap. I realize 200 isn't that hot but it runs way better when it's around 180. No hard starting or "dieseling" when you shut it off. So sounds like the best idea is to go do some shopping at the Liqour Comission.

    Old joke

    This guy just started at his new job, working at a porno shop. His boss comes out and tells him that he has to leave for a while, and "can you handle it?" The new employee is somewhat reluctant, but with the boss's positive comments he finally agrees. So, the guy is there by himself for a little while and a white woman comes in. She asks; "How much for the white dildo?" He answers, "$35." She, "How much for the black one?" He, "$35 for the black one, $35 for the white one." She, "I think I'll take the black one. I've never had a black one before." She pays him, and off she goes. A little bit later a black woman comes in and asks; "How much for the black dildo?" He, "$35." She, "How much for the white one?" He, "$35 for the white one, $35 for the black one." She, "I think I'll take the white one. I've never had a white one before." She pays him, and off she goes. About an hour later a young blonde woman comes in and asks, "How much are your dildos?" He, "$35 for the white, $35 for the black." She, How much is that plaid one on the shelf?" He, "Well, that's a very special dildo it'll cost you $165." She thinks for a moment and answers, "I'll take the plaid one, I've never had a plaid one before." She pays him, and off she goes. Finally, the guy's boss returns and asks, "How did you do while I was gone?" To which the saleman responded, "I did really good, I sold one white dildo, one black dildo, and I sold your thermos for $165!"

    I can't believe that 20 degrees in the 180-200 degree temperature range would make any difference..............but you know your engine better than I do. I have my SBC set up to run at 185, reaching 195-200 at the stop & go lights in the summer. In the winter months (depending on the outside air temperature) I have different sizes of black-painted cardboard to place between the grill and the front of the radiator core. I try to get the temp around 205-210 degrees then when I turn the heater on it drops back to 185-190.

    In your case I would try a 12lb-15lb cap to stop the "puking" and to address the "dieseling" slow the idle speed a tad. Then if I still had "hard start" problems I would look at initial timing and the possibility of starter "heat soak."

    Good luck.
