hardened exhaust seats and valve guides, new vacuum advance , block, radiator, and heater core purged o years of build up. new brass freeze plugs new rod and main bearings, timing chain, water pump, and oil pump while we were in there=no pings. also found some vacuum leaks. runs much better and has substantial power gains. only problem now is that it misses at idle while in gear. it's not consistant but two plugs seem to be getting way less juice than the rest. worn distributor? bad wires? i'm going to let it idle in the dark tonight and see how much arcing is going on. the wires look new but the car sat for 17 years that i know of and they may have been new then. i'm basically figuring on replacing them either way.
