Some modulator lines went to a fitting on the intake that had a small orifice that acted as a sort of delay valve. If you still are using one like this, be sure the orifice isn't clogged up w/carbon, etc., or the tranny might shift weird.
I'll try that method then. I'll also check for the delay valve, thought I don't recall seeing anything of the sort.

Here are some close up shots of the spark plugs. The were wiped down after removal. I might have the order backwards (put away in a hurry), but they are the correct side.
