  1. I'm looking for a VDO windshield washer bottle to replace my leaking unit.
  2. Finally got to drive the car after winter projects of transmission seals, install rebuilt distributor and O2 sensor. I drove to our local cars and coffee and it ran well but very lean at highway cruise. 17 ish. Got home and rechecked and adjusted the timing, moves the cam in the tuna can just a mm nearer the setting hole and adjusted the idle AF mixture. Idle Cruise about 60 Can’t say enough good about having the O2 sensor. Best improvement for money that I wish I had done sooner.

    Plugs are Bosch W7DC

    After I posted that I realized how dumb that was. Just happy its back to a good place now. Looking forward to spring to get it right.

    It may sound worse on the video. I just adjusted the valves last year.

    Yes it is. It was checked at Advanced when I had the distributor rebuilt. I will swap the new part back in once its running the way I want and see if it is indeed part of the issue.

    Update. Checked the plug wires and order, again. No issue. Changed cap and rotor to old known functioning parts. A bit better but not right. I did notice that I assembled the rubber coupling between the air box and the intake wrong. There was a gap at the underside of the connection. Fixed that and it's much better. Not sure if I got lucky or it was a combination of bad "new" parts and lean condition. Interestingly even though it appeared to run really rich my O2 gage read lean. That would account for the leak in the intake. Not perfect but once the salt is gone on the roads I can properly warm it up and set timing, AF, etc. So for now happy. IMG_2289-1.mov

    Finally back at the car. Verified TDC and distributor alignment. Timing sprocket mark aligned, rotor at notch and flywheel mark for TDC visible. Am I missing anything here? Onto simple things like wires etc.

    I’m thinking it’s wires as well. Just panicking for no reason. I’m planning on checking order for a third time, checking to see that the plugs are getting spark and replacing new cap and rotor with some “known good” spares.

    Its a 74 Tii with vacuum retard not advance. Good idea. I'm hoping that its something simple to fix. I may have a bad wire. That would be too easy. Wonder if I damaged a wire while removing the distributor in the fall. Good thought.

    Tried advance/retard and it either dies or runs worse.

    Timing was great prior to the second dist rebuild. 2500 ball at edge of viewing hole. Now I can’t time it as the motor won’t really run and accelerate. The TDC mark on the timing chain gear was verified to be aligned with the oil bar.

    Running points. I checked and rechecked the wires but will check again after work. 1 at notch then 3,4,2 CW.
  14. Some background. The car ran fine during the summer until my distributor gave out. I had it rebuilt by Advanced Distributors, installed it and it ran better than it ever did. Solid timing, dwell etc. One of the retaining rings in the distributor failed so I sent it back for another repair. I just finished some transmission seal work and wanted to start the car after installing the newly repaired distributor. I verified TDC by removing the valve cover and installed the distributor aligning the rotor with the notch and verified with marks I put on the outside of the housing to be sure it went back to the original position. Attached is a video showing what it does. Very lumpy idle, no acceleration of the motor, turning the distributor doesn't improve anything. Im stumped and don't know where to start. Feels like ignition again. IMG_2281.MOV
  15. While I was replacing transmission seals I installed my wideband kit. Looking to finally being able to tune my Tii. Unfortunately found that my clutch master is leaking. Next project.
