My 80 is cutting out on hard left turns. I drove it around the parking lot and swung it hard around a few corners, left and right. It ONLY happens when I turn right. Anyone have this happen before? Or have a diagnosis?

sounds like it might be a wiring harness short
search for the typical wiring harness problem areas and threads to see what others have done. I had something similar and it was upon acceleration and the associated torque on the motor was pulling on a shorted wire in the engine harness. I would check the harness at the firewall by the EGR pipe and if its not burnt already, wrap it now. Then check the harness as it travels along the valve cover and to each associated part (throttle body, IAC, etc). Lastly another area is on the firewall behind(in front of) the glove box. By checking I pulled and twisted and pinched along the harness and wiring, jiggling clips while the motor is running and try and replicate the stumble. good luck
doh.... and dont forget to check the simple things like battery terminals and connections
