New problem occuring. Heated it up to operating tempurature. Set the dwell at exactly 32, it was at 30 from the distributor rebuild guy. Set the timing at 4 degress BTDC. Set the static idle at 900. Sitting at an idle with no load on it it purrs like a kitten. Try to give it a little gas about 2 or 3000 RPM's and it starts to shake violently and has a HUGE steady miss. I thought I had it licked. But no way I can even move it out of the garage. Keep in mind this is a NEW problem that was not there before. Going out to make sure I don't have any spark plug wires crossed. What the hell?? I wish 10 of you guys lived close so we could dial this baby in... Wind out of sales, I mean sails... Danny

I figured the wiring out and fired it up. I guess my solo valve adjustment went well. She runs pretty good. I let it warm up and thermostat open, topped off the anti-freeze. Checked for water/oil leaks. It's not quite right at this point. But Tom will set the dwell at 32, time it, and adjust the carb. It started as fast as I could turn the key. Just RIGHT NOW Boom. The motor doesn't even shake. Oil was dirty so I changed the oil and filter. I also flushed the motor before I installed the water pump. Got a bunch of rust crap out. After tom test drive, I will pull it in the driveway and pull the bottom rad. hose and dump it. I am getting pretty excited at this point..
 
 Hey Paul, are you the closest member of the CRG team to me here in Sonoma? Maybe I will make a run down Sunday  Grin   ... Danny

Still no answer on the coil wires?? Or the ceramic resistor block??

I hear ya on the octane. I will throw in 3 or 4 gallons and the rest 91 at 76.

Yes Vince, I am feeling pretty good. And ready to get Raquel on the road. There was a pump out at the track 3 or 4 years ago with the 116. I will have to update that info. But good idea, I will bring my two 5 gallon cans out.

 Paul, I am very surprised to see 100 at ANY pump in CA. Do you live in Redwood City?..  ... Danny

I forget where the coil wires go??

I know the distributor wire goes to the neg. side.
 
 Brown wire coming from left side thru harness carrier on firewall. It has a nice u-shaped bracket attached.  ?

 And the wire coming from the coil resister.  ?
 That porcelain thing that is not even stock for my car, but I'll leave it for now. Probably can't hurt.

 Gonna change the oil and filter and fire it up Tom. Morning. Yea!!. Then get it timed and adjust the carb. If she runs good, then it's out to Sears Point for 116 Octane LEADED! I'll do a half tank of that and half 76.. Danny

more progress... My friend could not help with the valve adjustment, so I did it myself. I think I did it correctly. I followed JohnZ's instructions. We will see...

More progress... It just kills me not to clean and wire wheel all this stuff and prime it, and repaint it, and bake it in my oven. And paint the front of the block and the heads etc. BUT, I KNOW, she is a survivor, so I will keep it that way.

  I have decided to leave this car as is... At least for now I don't think I will ever paint it. I will have it wet sanded and a couple coats of clear applied and leave it be. If the motor ever lets go, and I have to pull it, well then we can see...

Mike here is the tool I bought. It is, in fact, a "harmonic balancer installer".... The hold back wrench slipped a little before this picture was taken. But you thread it into the crank and start to turn and she goes right in. I just put the open end wrench against the frame so I didn't have to hold two things.
