To glory or kicking this thing out to the curb Confused I got it to run after replacing the distributor, coil and plugs and wires. I haven't touched the carb but I need to replace the fuel pump before I can tell how it's working.

I replaced the MC and bled it so now the two front brake lines are weeping, and I broke off all of the bleed screws so I'm replacing them next. Rolling Eyes

After that I'm buying tires and then I'll get to drive it. It fired right up once I figured out the timing issue. It smoked for a few seconds but gee whiz, it's been sitting for almost ten years!

So please tell me to keep up the good job cos I'm losing really bad lately and I'm about to throw under a car cover.

It's lives! Installed the fuel pump, reset the timing (AGAIN). The rotor wasn't turning. I discovered it wasn't seated all the way down so the engine turned but the rotor just sat. Anyway it fired right up and I'm feeling better now. Still gotta do the brakes and tires.......
