Master Cylinder is rusty, but not leaky... after a while I saw the brake fluid leaking towards the back of the car. The brake line is cracked right next to the drivers side front seat... Gonna have to replace it. Its a cheap part - but I've never done it before. Shouldn't be too bad.. Maybe finalize the brake job and replace the gas tank next weekend. Could be 'drivable' soon. Not comfortable, but safe enough to go down the street. We'll see.
I've got a somewhat unusual stock distributor. Its the CA emissions model - so I guess my car was original purchased in CA. Its a DVDA - so the vacuum hoses stay on when settting the timing a: 5deg ATDC @ 800-950rpm. First time idling without stalling in years!!!! Major step forward.
Here's the computer diagnosis. wiring pin diagram. One pin definitely goes to the coil. One definitely goes to the ignition side of the solenoid. With a couple of switches and a pigtail or two, I should be able to crank up the engine from the back of the car.
