tinker time

I thought over the last weekend
I'd get the banger engine in the A running.
Everything boiled down to rebuilding the distributor and carb,
which to me aren't valid ways to spend a day.
Sure it's important,
but that is work tailor made for the 34 watt light bulb.

I'm glad my naturally conscious procrastination tendencies won over,
as I've been tinkering for the past couple evenings on these things.
This would have added up to a full day really quick,
and I'm not even done yet.

After a ton of cleaning,
the carb pieces all look reusable.
Amazing after all these years.
All I'll need to dig up or cut out is a gasket.

I found an ancient set of points on ebay.
The box is in the center of the picture,
and is one of those things I'll have to stash in a junk pile.
I'm unable to throw stuff like that away until it is accidentally destroyed.
Anyway the distributor has been totally disassembled and oiled up.
A couple more evening hours and we'll be ready for a weekend startup!
