This proves again - what you don't know is not as bad as what you THINK you know, but is just WRONG.
Extra points for going back to it until fixed.

Like Rocket99 with his challenge with coil packs, what volvolugnut says I am a +1 to what he says. Sometimes walking away from an issue helps to re-think and issue and then going back to basics helps. Congrats on getting it figured out! Neil.

Did you remove the distributor doing work? Try using an old timing light to check proper spark timing. Distributors can be tricky to get proper spark timing.

Replaced the heater bulkhead so that miss Vermont 2020 has heat

Deep flush of cooling system

Bit toning up ancillaries.

Took pEarl out for a hot 60 mph run. Throttle body lever fell off on lift. Fixed with a spare throttle body lever retainer, which can be used to hold her in a pony tail

We got the Duchess of a Earl back home safe and sound. We had a wonky idle which cleared when we unplugged the Idle air control valve so that probably needs cleaning. Thread bumped.

Here she is, back with her family!
