1984 SD 380 Fuel Injection Problem

I am running into problem with my 1984 SD 380. I replaced fuel pump. Every once in a while it stops on the road. It has been doing like that for last few days.

If I open the air-filter box, and push the plate a lilttle down. It starts working.

Does anyone know what needs to be done to fix it?

Okay,I'm guessing this is a gasser ( SD ?? ) . Sounds like you need to either adjust the minimum air , adjust the potentiometer , or check the rest height of the airflow sensor plate. Worst case scenario is your control pressure is too high limiting the amount of fuel able to be delivered.
