Re: Stumped by no start...

Figure out the "0" on #4. Meanwhile think about not firing but save it for later. Also make sure that the screw holding the distributor cam is really holding the cam and can't slip out of time.

Re: Crankshaft pulley question

Don't listen to any one, including me. Racing oil makes faster, thicker oil makes slower.

Re: Jacking up car . . .

I agree with Paul. Front or rear by center or end, but then place a jack stand and remove jack. Easiest is lift in center and stands to the outside.

Re: Battery Acid Recharge
