I love the black car. I hope you can get it sorted. The second gen R/Ts are a dying breed.

It's sorted. It was a ignition lock actuator pin. Easy fix.

Only 600k on the truck? wink A little bitty John Deere? laugh

I kinda figured it was something like that.

Do they still have those ignition switch parts new somewhere? I have rebuild many locks and ignition switches from multiple sort of working units, but a complete replacement NOS always works better.

Red Omni is tore down, it was definitely a bad belt. Got it together and it fires up and purrs like a kitten.

Retimed, test fired, one small fire and a dash of sad. 

 

First test fire it back fired out of intake and got a good flame, 2nd fire sounded like a knock due to alt bracket flopping. I'll upload sound of alt bracket bouncing video in a bit.

I do miss the dodge 4 cylinders and how easy it is to change timing belts...the only engine easier is the Ford 2.3 Lima engine(I timed that one at a little over 30mins for a timing belt)
