We were hoping for first start yesterday .... but it was not to be .... primed oil system, drained a full tank of old gas etc .... sounded like it wanted to start .... and now no spark ... arghhh

Maybe today if we can figure out which "new" ignition component is bad ... and someone has it in stock

The beauty of a consistent flash from your antique Craftsman timing light is truly underrated!

 

Anyone notice the lack of A/C, radio, power windows etc on this SVO?

"Anyone notice the lack of A/C, radio, power windows, power door locks etc on this SVO?"  - No comments/ guesses on the significance of this ?

 

These were handy getting power source for the new gauges as this car has few fuses (see above) ....
