...and the carb only caught on fire 3 times! But after the fuel evaporated, the choke cooled off and the distributor was retarded a little, she fired right up. It's still not perfect though, I think I may have an advance issue. The little weights and springs seem a little screwed up. When I pry them outward, they don't exactly spring back in place on their own. It all seems kinda stiff, and is a little rusty. I'm not sure what I need to do to that, but the people down at schuck's weren't very helpful. Would I be better off just buying a new dist, or should I keep fooling around with this one? The engines seems to hesitate a little before taking off, I am starting to think it could be advance related. The condition of the vacuum advance is kinda in question as well. I've already gotten a new cap and rotor, can/should I buy a dist minus those? Where would be a good place to get one? Ebay? I already scored there with the wires and plugs... What should I watch out for?
