I must share my joy! After two years and a misbegotten
3L7 transplant, the P4 is alive again. Fired her up
today and the engine, originally out of one of Ted
Schumachers low mileage Ohio P5 rust buckets, ran like a
Swiss watch. (After a carb overhaul and moving all the
plug leads one position clockwise on the distributor cap.)
Timing it from scratch was just a matter of following the
shop manual. Much yet to do, but finally making
progress. Even the color doesn't look too bad today.

A round of Guinness on me!!! (Buy your own. Send me the
label and the tab.)
