Thanks to a little off-board suggestions from Papa Tony and Bob Brown, I installed a separate fuse box to run the headlight mod, Stereo/Amp, secondary radiator fan console switch and push-button starter in a nice, clean way that allows for easy maintenance. Very happy with the results.
I’m still tweaking the position of the Euro-style front bumpers that Ricardo re-produced, to get it just right (while leaving room for adjustment) before finalizing. They are a great fit with the revised brackets Ricardo made. Ricardo made the Euro-style side markers for me as well. I sourced the spoiler from Henk.
I have never timed a motor before, nor really understood how/why. Yeah, I know. Well today I decided to teach myself and went to Harbor Freight and picked up a $25 timing light. If fact, I picked up a lot of things, because you know, it’s Harbor Freight.
I’m checking the timing because when it failed the last smog check, the tech said the timing was off. First, I checked my timing marks:
According to the Timing Guide, I think I’m off the mark from the start?
This is where I’m at with the motor running, timing light advance on 10 degrees. The tach reads 1200 at idle, which is too high (if it’s reading correctly).
