For intermittent problems, check the wiring for intermittent shorts to ground, between wires or intermittent open circuits. Very hard to find, very cheap to fix if you do. On our 85 900 T, we have had this twice. Once the cable from computer to injectors, etc. was grounding out on the head and I tied it to the A/C hose. Second time the wiring from the ingnition module to the Hall effect sensor in the distributor was shorting out where it winds underneath part of the cooling system on the head. Charles.
