It still has the H-85-15 spare in the trunk(never been bolted on) oh and did I mention the owners manuals in the glove box? Now back to my question... Do I pull it or keep spraying untill it turns?
You will find that carb cleaner and a little air to blow the crud from around the edges will soak in and get it loose faster than d 40. Also look at the shank on the distributor doesnt it have Flats to put a wrench( big crescent wrench) on? If you get it loose adjust your timing. Dont pull it whats the sense. Carb cleaner man
