When I got home and finished dinner, I went out and did a few things:
-Points eliminator screw was tight. I also chased the wires to make sure they were secure. Is there a way to check the ohms on this thing?
-I checked the ohms on the coil and it checks out.
-I pulled the plugs, they were sooty and black. I cleaned and checked the gap and reinstalled. The gap was about .76mm. Is that the usual gap?
-I couldn't tell if there's any fuel in the oil, but it is fresh and the level is between the two lines. Actually it's 3/4 up from the bottom line. I was going to unscrew the filter to let out a touch, but I might just pull the valve covers off and check the valves, just to be sure.
I didn't start it up tonight just to be courteous to the few neighbors that live near by. I kinda live in a cove, and sound travels very well. Maybe I'll wake them up tomorrow morning before I go to work.
