Re: Chasing timing marks

Did you set the distributor to point to #4 at TDC?
And have timing light set up on #1?

Re: How many 128 owners in mira land?

Andy, that is a super nice ride. I'm fixing to redo the suspension on my street car. Can you talk a bit more about the rear coilovers? I don't much about them.

Typically you can google part numbers to see what they are, it's pretty amazing.

Re: 128 Series Microfilms Added to Library

I've got a 128... so there are at least 2!
