    I found a cool sheet of paper under the seat, and set the ignition timing and idle with a vacuum guage. Runs Soo much better. Choke cable broke.

    Check out the build sheet... IMG_20210103_191532.jpg

    Sadly I didn’t do anything to the old Comet....
    But I did accept a job at a local custom fabrication & restoration shop that has lots of expensive and cool equipment that will get the Comet rolling in the right direction this year :bananaman:
