Re: Reading a misleading ad.

Is soft top delete an option? Then why the rubber strap on the rear side panel? Not started for 10 years? So it ran for 5 years after the plate expired? Why was it parked, then? If it had no accidents, why was the LF fender welded back on, so badly? "Clear Florida title"? Then why the Colorado plate...

You can't send Mike for spark plugs, he'd have to go to the plant and make them!

Re: Adjustable cam wheels

I have Vick's SOHC adjustable in my X (for 3 years now), it appears to be a single made like their pair for the DOHC, seems to work well and has had no issues. I have not readjusted it from the initial setup.

Re: intermittent starting problem

A friend just got an '81, and as we were tuning it today, we got close and it just stopped running, and would not restart. Frustrated, I thought it was something I did; the timing light was still flashing, so I focused on the FI. First was to turn on the ignition and press the airflow flap- and the ...
