I have the latest news from the mechanic now.  After spending 3 days diagnosing the issues with the fuel system we came to find out that the real problem was that the timing chain had slipped a link, which is causing the fuel injectors to fire early, or late, I am not sure which.  This is causing the car to idle too fast when cold and barely idle when it is hot.

We have to play with timing every time in order to get it to start depending on if the engine is hot of cold.  It looks like I will be spending a day or two in the garage replacing a timing chain in hopes that nothing else is wrong once I get that part completed.

Anyone feel like spending a couple days with me under the hood of ’84 Vic?
