    (y) Good job stickin' with it Dan. This now makes me wonder about the condenser on my old truck. I couldn't keep it running and was at a loss. That was 6 years ago before we moved and it went into storage.

    Glad you got 'er going.

    That is what killed me, i had all kinds of spark on all cylinders. i guess since i was putting the inline dummy light on each cylinder, it will spark, but doesnt show that the spark is consistent across all cylinders. maybe it is time to buy a bunch of those little spark plug testers and put one on every cylinder :)

    It is nice that it starts up every time. I filled it with coolant. I adjusted the idle mixture and set the idle RPMs. It is running real nice, just has a loud sound. Not sure if it is a exhaust leak or a rattlnig valve. I think exhaust leak because i can reach under the bottom of the manifold and feel hotter air coming out.
