Also, just thinking back to your original post, I wonder if it could have been a problem with the gas tank somehow. For example, your work on the rear end dislodging sediment in the tank and partially blocking fuel flow. Just a WAG.
I'm pretty sure I know where this hose is now.
And you may be right about the tank as well... I had the rear of the car up on ramps for a while and all of that moving around may have cause some issues. The tank does have lots of fill ups under it's belt.
