Congrats Ian! Put a timing light on it after you get the vacuum leaks nailed down. If you can get it to 10-12 BTDC without the TFI plug contacting anything don't bother re-stabbing it.

Now we're cooking with gas...

Got the inline pump bypassed and fixed a leak in the return line. Eventually I got to replace both lines tank to rail. I got the driveshaft situated and now im able to start it up and actually drive it into the shop on its own lol. The trans still works at least in 1st and reverse it does! ITS THE LITTLE THINGS PEOPLE!!

Got a huge list of crap to do but this is a long term project and also a learning experience for me.

Looks like it could use a coil or two cut off the rear springs.
