I haven't had the chance to update on this, finally got the distributor set on the proper tooth, she fired right up and the idle was hanging out at a grand or so. What i didn't know is that if you flood a vehicle repeatedly the gas will end up in the oil.... glad i caught it before i went down the road. Did an oil & filter change All is well for now i guess.
Thank you to those who have offered input!
Now, time to get this stinking body lift out.
