Watch on ebay and you may find one. Right now there is one for an 89
on there but the 88 had speed-density fuel control and the 89 and
later had mass-air. Other then that most of the other stuff is the
same. I really don't see why a bad fuel pump would only show up when
he shifts to 2nd. I'd be wondering if the Idle Air Valve is bad or
the base idle speed screw miss-adjusted. Back the screw out till it
doesn't touch the lever, then turn it one quarter turn more then when
it just barely touches.
