Default Broke down

Rode home on a burro. The truck was giving some trouble, running bad, then died. From reading this forum, I'm guessing condenser or coil. Maybe fuel pump. I've got some spares, a condenser from JC Whitney, a coil I found at the mine, and a fuel pump from Western Auto. Should be good to go. Going this weekend to fix it and drive it home.

Looks like Bonnie and Clyde left it there. I thought the burro broke down. Your plan sounds solid to me, good luck with getting the dwell set correctly.

It sounds like you have enough parts to get it running. You might want to bring another battery also because there is a good chance that the battery will be dead also.

If the pedal goes to the floor you may have a little air in it ,

When it's running again, consider giving the donkeys a ride home.

Better bring plenty of beer, looks pretty hot there and a air tank to blow up the tires.

Eastwood sells “patina preserver” for that!
It’s all the rage to leave it as found.

Straighten the grill and get some stainless trim items and she's good to go.
