In 1991, I couldn't diagnose an ignition/runability problem and put the car in a garage.
In 2012 I decided to get the car running for my children to use in high school nd bought a bunch of parts.
By 2016, with a new brake system (hoses, rotors,pads, drums, shoes), new clutch master cylinder, we bought a replacement 45CD distributor and replaced the SU with a Weber DGV.
The engine runs...poorly.
I noticed the timing chain cover leaking and found the tensioner flipped over but this didn't fix the timing issue.
Pulled the lifters and found some good pitting and decided, at 50K and 38 years, the engine probably needs a rebuild--which I don't have time for.
The car is complete, with hardtop and an electric overdrive except for the side valances in the engine compartment and the radio was stolen.
It'll need turn signal/high/low beam switch assembly.
I'm listing it here first before sending the to open market.
Many more pictures upon request!
