does it have continuity? if unplugging it did nothing to the engine, that is totally weird. Mine was so corroded that it read incorrectly and mad the car run rich and like shiteza, when I replaced the connector it ran perfect again, when I disconnected it while running it shut off. Anyway if yours has no continuity then its dead.

hey freez...

check your email. I sent you a zip file from my '78 FSM engine fuel section. All the tests are in there.
Every night take your spare change and stick it in a jar. Before you know it, you will have enough for a FSM.

I hate to ask this but are you sure you disconnected the temp sensor and not the thermotime switch. If you got the right one, in general the temp sensor should read around 2000 to 3000 ohms at room temp (around 68d F) and in the range of 200 to 300 ohms at around 180d F (engine hot temp).
