hello peter

thanks for the guidance. it has sat for 2 years in my garage waiting for me to take it for a drive. it was running just fine the 3 or 4 times i moved it in and out of the garage during that time. so a couple of months ago i went to move it and it wouldn't start. looked like a weak or poor spark. so i started replacing primary wire and the resistors. after that it started just fine. but went to this high low rpm and belching black smoke. seemed to calm down once it warmed a little.

it needs to get cleaned out with new gas. on the techron where can i get this brand. i seem to remember chevron sold it but we don't have chevron around here.

i know one thing is clear. it needs a tank full of premium gas and some good injector cleaner.

any advice is greatly appreciated.

Thanks Much!
